September’s book is Dysfunctional Males by Argentinian author Fernando Sdrigotti who answered questions from readers and from an invited audience in London’s Calder Bookshop and Theatre.
Fernando Sdrigotti is from Argentina and has been living in London since the early noughties. Fernando is editor of the online magazine Minor Literature[s]. Dysfunctional Males is his third published book but the first one he wrote directly in English. In this interview he talks about switching languages, exploring London as a writer, what is expected of Latin American writers and how he is crossing that barrier by not falling to those expectations.
About Dysfunctional Males:
Dysfunctional Males is a book of five short stories, all set in London, with a strong urban element, that deal with masculinity, loneliness, friendship, alienation, addictions; through the misadventures of its characters.

After 18 months of running as a podcast, we are happy to announce that from September Literary South is a radio show on Resonance 104.4, a radio station I’ve followed and listened to for years. As a podcast there is freedom with how long the episodes are or how frequently you publish them. Yet, to really fulfil our aim of connecting readers from Latin America and Spain with English-speaking readers I believe that being on Resonance 104.4 is going to increase our audience and get more people interested in literature from the region.
Our show is going to be on Resonance 104.4 every fourth Wednesday of the month (repeated the next Thursday) and one hour long.
We have many ideas for future episodes, authors, books that we want to share with you… our listener. So, thank you Resonance 104.4, for celebrating diversity and creativity in your programming.
And by all means, keep listening!
