David Trueba

The Creative Factory

Whenever David Trueba finishes writing a novel, shooting a movie or making a documentary, he is left with feelings of ambivalence. On the one hand, there is the satisfaction of a job finished and; on the other, the embarrassment of having to show his work. In order to neutralise those fears, when he is releasing or publishing something, he is usually already involved in a new project. We stole a few moments with him while he is immersed in the postproduction of his next film, 'A este lado del mundo'.

Sergio del Molino

“I Collect the Waste of History”

Few authors get their books on everyone's lips as soon as they hit bookshops. With a staggering ability to navigate at the juncture of fiction, essay and autobiography, writer and journalist Sergio del Molino will be at the helm of the Eñe Festival, which kicks off this week, with a focus on hybrid genres and disciplines revolving around the written word.

Sabina Urraca

The Hybrid Writer

From writing a piece about how the Bélmez's faces ruined her computer, to interviewing La Veneno, giving a TED talk and singing with her band Los Celos. Sabina Urraca has few things left to do in life.

Paula Bonet

Stories by Brush and Pen

Literature, illustration, painting—the boundaries between disciplines have never been an obstacle for the versatile Paula Bonet to express her inner world. The coming days she will be at the Eñe Festival, which occupies a special place in her heart, with her show 'Abrir la boca y decir lo nuestro' [Open our mouths and say our thing], in which painting and live poetry go hand in hand.

Tell me a Story

Journalists, poets, essayists, monologuists and artists will participate in the 11th edition of Festival Eñe, held in Madrid and Malaga and which, for the first time, has a guest country, Mexico.

Juan José Millás

The Endless Act of Writing

Inventive, bright, subtle or Kafkaesque are some of the most common qualifiers used to describe the narrative pulse and universe of Juan José Millás, a key figure in both Spanish journalism and contemporary fiction. With a new book under his arm, he is also one of the leading voices in this year’s Festival Eñe.

The Revolution of the Millennial Poets

In recent years, the Spanish literary ecosystem has been profoundly altered by a poetic explosion that has caused a flood of new creators coming from the insides of the internet. In addition to modifying the editorial landscape, the digital native poets have also collapsed the bestseller lists with their creative output.

Marina Perezagua

“Writing allows me to live with my characters”

Writing, diving—two ways of looking inside oneself, of fighting against the speed of the world. Marina Perezagua has been living in New York for over fifteen years, and her cosmopolitan nature permeates in her stories, set in faraway but recognisable and well-researched places. We speak to her about her last book, ‘Seis formas de morir en Texas’.

Carlos Zanón

The King of the Spanish Crime Novel

Carlos Zanón is among the greatest Spanish crime novelists, but his ambition and talent are not restricted to this genre. He is also a poet, novelist, columnist, literary critic, a lyricist for Loquillo and the curator of the Barcelona Negra literary festival, a position he has held for three years.
