Lectura y Charla Bilingüe: Alejandro Zambra
Alejandro Zambra is one of the most important writers working in any language today. Named “the most talked-about writer to come out of Chile since Bolaño” (New York Times Book Review), Zambra has published poetry and five novels: Multiple Choice, Bonsai, The Private Lives of Trees, Ways of Going Home and My Documents, which have been translated into more than ten languages. His stories have appeared in the New Yorker, the Paris Review, Harper’s, Tin House, and McSweeney’s, among others. In 2010, he was named one of Granta’s Best Young Spanish-Language Novelists.
Zambra was born in Chile in 1975 and lived under the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. His works of fiction often explore how a society is haunted by legacies of the past, while his writing style defies narrative convention with originality and humor. His new book, Multiple Choice, is written in the structure of Chile's Academic Aptitude Test, the standardized college admissions test in Chile until 2003. In it, he explores the role that education and testing played in constricting the discussion of art and ideas during the dictatorship and about the testing of compliance in today's context.
