April 12, 2010 - Horacio Castellanos Moya ("Dance with Snakes," "Senselessness," "The She-Devil in the Mirror"), widely considered among the leading contemporary Latin American writers, discusses his work, journalism, the myth of Roberto Bolaño, and world literature in general with Chad W. Post, director of Open Letter Books.

A finalist for the 2009 Best Translated Book Award, Horacio Castellanos Moyas Senselessness introduced English-language readers to one of the most provocative, singular voices of twentieth-century Latin American literature. The recent publications of "The She-Devil in the Mirror" and "Dance with Snakes" received widespread attention, and with more translations already in the works, its clear that readers will be hearing about Moya for years to come.
