Carlos Fuentes, Carmen Posadas, Rafael Reig and Jorge Franco at the Hay Festival

Carlos Fuentes, the acclaimed Mexican novelist and essayist, will be appearing at the Hay festival, heading up a line-up of treats for fans of Spanish-language literature. The former diplomat who spearheaded the Latin American literary boom of the 1960s will be talking about his latest book, The Eagle's Throne.
Fuentes is just one of a number of writers and thinkers who will be giving Hay a uniquely Spanish-speaking flavour this year. The festival will also welcome three writers at the forefront of the new wave of Spanish language fiction: Carmen Posadas, Rafael Reig and Jorge Franco. Introduced by the cultural editor of El Pais, they will discuss crime writing. Uruguayan-born Posadas is the author of Little Indiscretions, which has been described as Almodovar's take on Agatha Christie, Spaniard Reig's Blood on the Saddle is a crime fantasy set in Madrid and Colombian Franco is the author of a bestselling thriller, Rosario Tijeras.
