Clandestine in Chile: The Adventures of Miguel Littin
- New Translations
Translated from Spanish by Thea Gvasalia
The author tells how the book was written in the introduction: he met a Chilean filmmaker Miguel Littin in Madrid and heard about his clandestine visit to his home country. Marquez thought that there was much more behind the story of making a film about Pinochet’s dictatorship, so he recorded his conversation with Littin. Later he worked on the 18-hour recording, which he made into a ten-chapter book about the film director whose life was full of incredible adventures due to his political beliefs.
