THE ABSENT SEA: CARLOS FRANZ

Chilean writer Carlos Franz is feted as a masterful and eloquent voice in Latin American literature. The author of award-winning novels and short stories, his signature work is The Absent Sea (El desierto), which won the International Novel Prize La Nacion/ Sudamericana in 2005. Set in the aftermath of Chile’s 1973 coup, it’s “a fascinating story that is, at the same time, a dive into the depths of cruelty and human compassion, and into the violence of history,” according to Peruvian heavy-weight Mario Vargas Llosa. Franz talks about his work and his country, with Tom Moody.
