We all know Argentinean sensations like Julio Cortázar, Samanta Schweblin, and César Aira. And in recent years, writers like Silvina Ocampo and Antonio di Benedetto have slowly begun to get their due. But many other twentieth-century greats—including Osvaldo Lamborghini, Norah Lange, and Sara Gallardo—continue to languish in the shadows. Join acclaimed Argentinean writer Sergio Chejfec, renowned translators Esther Allen, Heather Cleary, and Charlotte Whittle and esteemed editor Edwin Frank to discuss the legendary Argentinean writers you should be reading but probably aren’t. Moderated by Words Without Borders editor Eric M. B. Becker.
