Gioconda Belli and Grupo Sal DUO - "I am like a vast country"

Gioconda Belli and Grupo Sal DUO

With Lutz Kliche and Viola Gabor  

Grupo Sal brings Gioconda Belli to Europe again. The famous Nicaraguan writer and poet works together with the Grupo Sal Duo for justice in her home country. “I will not die without seeing the liberated country,” she announced in spring 2018.

In her new work, her first volume of essays, “I am like a vast country” we experience how she combines eroticism and feminism, as well as her love for Nicaragua and her involvement in political discussion. Humorously and confidently, she creates a bridge between political awareness and literary pleasure.

“This book tells of memories that I have kept to myself so far, of struggles that even in defeat had their purpose and justification and even victory. Wanting the impossible is never wrong. It’s a way to challenge the dreary reality that so often threatens to discourage us. ”

Together with Viola Gabor, the “German voice” of Gioconda Belli, and with Lutz Kliche, expert on Nicaragua and translator, Grupo Sal wants to show  solidarity with the people of Nicaragua and give them strength and expression with the voice of Gioconda Belli!

“Writing allowed me to reach others, women and men; it gave me eyes to look beyond myself, to slip into other bodies and to feel myself as a multiple being, to learn to love and to suffer in the face of it of the splendor and misery of our human nature, but also to question everything and, in Rubén Darío’s words, to try to understand where we come from and where we are going. ” –
