Art and Literature
Argentine writer and filmmaker Edgardo Cozarinsky won the 5th Gabriel García Márquez Hispanic American Short Story Prize, which was awarded in Bogotá, for his work "En el último trago nos vamos" (In the Last Drink We're Going). The jury considered that the winning work "is, above all, a book written with a great narrative craft, with deep roots in an ancient literary tradition and a remarkable intellectual solidity," reported EFE news agency. Cozarinsky (1939) beat the other four finalists, including Argentinians Pablo Colacrai and Santiago Craig, who presented "Nadie es tan fuerte" and "Las tormentas", respectively. "En el último trago nos vamos" (Tusquets), the author moves between the story, the short story and the fragmented novel to tell without explaining a series of episodes in life characters who inhabit an ambiguous Buenos Aires, talk about Russian literature or remember tangos, mix among the dead and walk the limits of vigil.
