Listening to an interview is not the same as reading it afterwards. In oral expression there are gestures, euphemisms, irony and emotions that are difficult to put on paper. The merit of this book is to leave a valuable record of these pleasant encounters with artists and intellectuals.
In these three volumes, journalist Vivian Lavin gives us an interesting collection of interviews with very prominent figures of national and universal culture. Deep conversations of the author with intellectuals of note, whose fertile and extensive trajectories are exemplary and that, at the same time, were divulged by her prestigious and consolidated program Vuelan las Plumas, in Radio Universidad de Chile. Renowned poets, novelists, chroniclers and essayists who unveil their soul, passions and excellence in the most diverse fields of artistic work and academia.
A key series for the benefit of historians work and inspiration, as well as those of the students and creators from the present and the future.
“I thought these interviews were a thing of the past. As some of them were conversations I thought would no longer have that primitive freshness. However, while reviewing them I realized that they had not lost the essential: the ability to move... although it is not rare when it comes to testimonies of those who I consider to be "indispensable", as Bertolt Brecht said”.
