One of Mexico’s leading contemporary novelists, poets, and playwrights speaks on Mexican science fiction.
Carmen Boullosa is one of Mexico’s leading novelists, poets and playwrights. Some of her seventeen novels deal with historical themes – the world of Moctezuma, the early Colonial period in Mexico City, the life of pirates in the 17th Century Caribbean, the era of Cervantes – and have been translated into Chinese, Italian, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, and Russian. Boullosa also writes (and prints) art books, mixing image and text, which have been exhibited at the Museo de Arte Moderno de la Ciudad de México, the Sala Pablo Ruiz Picasso del Museo de Arte Moderno de Madrid, and the New York Public Library. Her poems have appeared in the art books of leading painters such as Juan Soriano, Magali Lara, Othón Tellez and Philip Hughes, whose book with Boullosa, Jump of the Manta Ray, was a 2003 British Book Design Award finalist.
