Lemus & Boullosa

A few weeks ago, I had the good fortune of interviewing Mexican literary critic Rafael Lemus and Mexican-cum-New-Yorker writer Carmen Boullosa. Among other thoughtful things, Lemus —who had recently published a collection of short stories— said he saw no difference between writing fiction and book reviews: just a leap from text form to another. Boullosa, in turn, commented on her novel El complot de los románticos, an inventive text in which authors cross not only the borders between countries, but also those that separate the living from the dead.
