Fiction, poetry and opera remain center stage for me in 2016, with work moving forward in all realms.  A lot to celebrate so far, including the talented group of writers from around the world who attended Under the Volcano’s 13th season of master classes in Tepoztlan, where my wonderful colleagues were Owen Sheers,  Jonathan Levi, Valeria Luiselli, Álvaro EnrigueAlison Wearing and our featured guest writer, Sandra Cisneros.

Central projects:  I’ve finished my novel Marose and am creating the libretto for a Spanish-language opera based on the Mexican Day of the Dead.

It was an honor to be interviewed about the role of memory in my work earlier this year by Raúl Silva, the thoughtful host of El Arte de la Memoria. His team did an amazing job of integrating all the strands of my writing–with beautiful music! Click here to listen to the podcast.
