Latin Noir

In the land of the Zapatistas, Augusto Pinochet and Fidel Castro, what are the stories Latin Americans have been telling to confront their troubled past? Latin Noir travels to five Latin American cities, to meet with famous crime novelists Leonardo Padura (Havana), Luis Sepulveda (Santiago), Paco Ignacio Taibo II (Mexico City), Santiago Roncagliolo (Lima), Guillermo Orsi, and Claudia Piñiero (Buenos Aires). Through their work, we discover a unique genre of flourishing literature that is political, dark and above all concerned with a sense of extreme disorder created by the state’s involvement in crime.
