The raw, the cooked and the criminal: interview with Rodolfo Pérez Valero

Abstract:

The writer Rodolfo Pérez Valero (Guanabacoa, Cuba, 1947) is crucial to understand the development of the Cuban crime fiction because of his vast and outstanding devotion to this genre as creator, and because of his work as cultural agitator and manager. In this interview, Pérez Valero reflects on, among other issues, the relationships between cultural politics and crime fiction in Cuba in the decades of 1970 and 1980.
