Patricio Pron (love)

The voice of the Argentine writer Patricio Pron, who considers that there was a gap between what is conceived as love today and how it is reflected in the novels, an issue that gave rise to his work “Mañana tendremos otros nombres”, which has been awarded Alfaguara Award for Novel 2019.

As a “fascinating autopsy of a love break” has described the jury this work of Pron, a text “subtle and wise, of great psychological depth, which reflects the contemporary epoch in an exceptional way and takes the pulse to new ways of understanding the affections.”

Issues that Patricio Pron (Rosario, Argentina, 1975), author of five short story books and seven novels, had never before addressed, that has been delighted and surprised by the award.

More than about a rupture, the novel is about sentimental ties in this historical moment, since the notion of love has changed a lot in recent times,” the Argentine writer said in an interview with EFE.

First, listen MP3 with the voice of Patricio Pron (January 23, 2019):

 

Then, read translation of the transcription:

“It’s a moment in which the concept of love is changing as it had not possibly done in many years and while new couples and new forms of union are being formed, it is increasingly difficult to imagine what the happy ending of a love story.”
