The writer will be guest editor of seal for a year
Mercedes Cebrián, writer, and translator, will be fourth guest editor of stamp Horse Trojan, after Alberto Olmos, Lara Moreno and Elvira Navarro. Very in summary: Cebrián, like his predecessors, will have task of choosing six new books in its catalog between "new voices".
The plans. "Obviously I've been working on catalog for several months, if not it would be impossible to get first title in February 2018. Above all, because publishing companies that belong to large groups working with a lot of advance -a thing that I am learning, truly this year. Sometimes I dream of very specific books that don't exist or that I have not given (for example, a series of chronicles about daily life in Ceuta and Melilla), and, in absence of m, as it shot towards my main interests, but taking into account diversity in all senses, mainly of literary genres. So in end just guiding me in my decisions is in text itself, not wher an author is from this or what site or have a specific age, while in Latin american literature always has a gap secured in my readings. I already have some of novels chosen, some daily and some chronic."
what is this all about? "The work of guest editor in Trojan Horse it seems to me similar to that of a curator of art. I feel that I have to choose some parts and put toger a católogo carry my imprint, rar as if he were organizing a small exhibition. If this stage lasts more time, could you post some of manuscripts in process that interest me and that, unfortunately, will not be ready for 2018. But reality is that time is of essence and that requires good aim on my part".
The background in Riding of Troy. "I especially have in mind line that followed Constantino Bértolo, among or things because he had no limitations as clear of time as guest editors who have preceded me, so she was able to develop a catalog that sometimes I read as a laboratory of editorial, where re are also nods to his own fili".
"I liked also to detect footprint of editors as invited guests who have preceded me in ir decisions, and read ir titles has guided me a lot, but I have to use my sense of smell staff (and train you) to find my authors, which I'm already generating a link to something morly, I should say."
