Re: “Venezuelan author living in exile in Pittsburgh publishes translated novel

Oh dear.

I do live in Venezuela. And yes, I would definitely love not living here and get all my family out of here because I know what this government is about.
Back in the 80's this was way too different from what it is now.
You should come again, live here, work here, spend the whole day in a line just to buy milk, shampoo or flour and then we could talk about how great things are. Don't you think?

Re: “Venezuelan author living in exile in Pittsburgh publishes translated novel

It is really easy to judge someone when those experiences are far away from what you have lived, but only read about someone else's life.
Venezuela is a reality that very few people get to know very well. And its not only about the hate mails, books banning or anything. It's also about the violence, the hate in every Venezuelan's heart, the way we are being controlled, all of our media is owned by the government, the way that power has destroyed a "modern" society. That's what he has tried to show in his novels, that's what you should be aware of before criticizing.

I'm from Venezuela. I'm studying Journalism and I get very sentimental with what we are living.

Thank You Israel for your novels, they caught me.
