Episode 11: Night Prayers by Santiago Gamboa

Book Club Edition

In this episode Colombian author Santiago Gamboa answers question readers sent about his acclaimed thriller Night Prayers.

“I’m not the kind of writer who writes about a place when he is in the place. I prefer to distance myself. When I was younger living in Colombia I didn’t write about Colombia. Then, when I moved to Spain I started to write about Colombia. Then, when I moved to France I wrote about Spain. I need a distance from the places.”

Sound engineer: Oscar Pérez.
