To Walk Alone in the Crowd
Antonio Muñoz Molina in conversation with Maneesha Taneja
Award winning Spanish writer Antonio Muñoz Molina's novel, Un andar solitario entre la gente, recently translated into English as, To Walk Alone in the Crowd, is an absorbing part memoir, part novel and part chronicle of urban wandering. Deeply rooted in nostalgia of the mundane yet extraordinary, Molina's narrative is a skillful take on contemporary life and the profundity of the digital and concrete jungles around us. His other novels include In the Night of Time, Sepharad, and Like a Fading Shadow. In conversation with academic and author Maneesha Taneja, Molina gives us a peek into his writing style and the ecological and aesthetic inspirations behind his most recent work.
