Teresa Solana is Barcelona’s best-selling crime writer and creator of the much-loved accident-prone private detective twin brothers Borja and Eduard. Teresa writes in Catalan and will be joined in conversation by award-winning literary translator, Peter Bush, who has translated over 70 books from Catalan, Spanish, Portuguese and French and is also Teresa’s husband.
Barcelona Tales presents a selection of newly translated short stories by fourteen writers, many of them Catalan. Barcelona has been renowned in world literature from the day rural innocents Don Quixote and Sancho Panza visited its streets at the beginning of the seventeenth-century and this new collection opens up the city in ironic, tragic, and lyrical ways, inviting readers to explore fictional lives and literary styles that reflect the dynamic, conflict-ridden character and history of this great European city.
Join husband and wife team Peter Bush and Teresa Solana as they discuss the writers included in the anthology, their portrayal of Barcelona, and their own work together.
