Writing resistance

Por Blog de La Central
14.5.2021

From James Baldwin and Zora Neale Hurston to Bernadine Evaristo and Caleb Azumah Nelson, we have put together this selection of titles as a celebration of these brilliant author’s lives and work, that have been inevitably permeated by resistance against challenging modes of existing in the world. Here are some of our favorite recent debuts and modern classics that cast a critical eye over an ongoing present that continues to fail to recognize other communities, bodies and love as well as versions of history and cultural myths that bind us all.

RESEÑA

Katherine Angel

El buen sexo mañana

Por Pol Cirujano

Katherine Angel nos exhorta a pensar una ética sexual que no se conforme con la cultura del consentimiento y la visión estructural de la violencia, sino parta de la vulnerabilidad compartida y de que, nos guste o no, la sexualidad es un terreno en el que no existen certezas absolutas y en el que (como en todo lo que tiene que ver con el sujeto) no somos soberanes de nosotres mismes aunque tengamos agencia.
