Eduardo Galeano tomorrow in Barcelona

Eduardo Galeano - BarcelonaThe writer will presents “Mirrors”, this Monday in BarcelonaEduardo Galeano defines to his text like `Around the world in 600 stories” .

The Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano advances that he will read a selection of them in his  presentation Monday in  “American House in Barcelona“. In an interview, the recognized journalist and writer speak of his work like “a house that has many doors and many windows”, and invite the reader “to enter by where she wants”.

I remember the beautiful “Genesis” of “Memory of fire” (1982):

“The woman and the man dreamed that God was dreaming about them. God was singing and clacking his maracas as he dreamed his dream in a tobacco smoke, feeling happy but shaken by doubt& mystery. The Makiritare Indians know that if God dreams about eating, he gives fertility and food. If God dreams about life, he is born and gives birth.”

Something about Galeano and “Mirrors”, here (spanish).

I see it in El Universal.
