Abstract

In this interview with Paloma Díaz-Mas which took place in June 2017 in Madrid, the author discusses different topics such as dementia, memory and forgetfulness, relationships between mothers and daughters, as well as gender roles in present-day Spain. Additionally, the writer addresses connections among her works, explaining how her novels El sueno de Venecia (1992), Como un libro cerrado (2005), and Lo que olvidamos (2016) may be considered a trilogy due to their exploration of similar concerns. Lastly, Dfaz-Mas comments on her writing process, the autobiographical aspects in her work, and her plans for future projects.
