The Salvadorian writer Horacio Castellanos Moya belongs to a generation of Latin American novelists who draw on elements of the crime genre to deal with themes of violence and crime in their countries. This author of nine novels and several collections of short stories is concerned both with the violence of the past (such as the Salvadorian civil war) and with that of the present. Castellanos Moya has lived a number of countries and comes from a Salvadorian-Honduran family, which gives him a unique perspective from which he examines issues concerning other Central American countries as well as his own. This interview focuses primarily on his connection to crime fiction, but also investigates the many other levels in his literature and offers a broad overview of his work.
