Portals - Episode 2: Fernanda Melchor with Caelainn Hogan

Hosted by Caelainn Hogan, Portals is a special podcast series from ILFDublin that takes listeners beyond their radius, through conversations with a half-dozen writers based across the globe, all of whom were scheduled to read at ILFDublin 2020, prior to its postponement.

In this episode, Mexican writer Fernanda Melchor discusses her International Booker Prize-shortlisted novel, 'Hurricane Season', a formidable portrait of Mexico and its demons and a masterpiece of contemporary Latin American literature. You can order the book from our festival bookseller, The Gutter Bookshop here.
