Eduardo Waisman: Calles Alquiladas (“Rented Streets”)
ENGLISH CORNER, CON LINDA JIMÉNEZ – Eduardo Waisman was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1944, to Jewish parents who had emigrated from Poland. He studied physics in Buenos Aires and later received his PhD from Yeshiva University in New York. He also has a master’s degree in International Relations from the University of California at San Diego. He has lived and worked as a physicist in Argentina, France and the United States, and has published numerous articles in professional journals.
Although he began to write poetry at an early age, he only started writing prose about ten years ago after moving to Madrid, where he began to participate in reading clubs and creative writing workshops.
His first collection of short stories, Calles Alquiladas (“Rented Streets”) was recently published by Esdrújula Ediciones, a new publishing house based in Granada. The book was presented in Madrid at the Centro de Arte Moderno, which is a bookstore specialized in Latin American writers and Spanish writers with a connection to Latin America.
