An Interview with Valeria Luiselli

With last year's twin publication of her first essay collection and her debut novel, titled Sidewalks and Faces in the Crowd (Coffee House Press; in the UK, Granta published these in 2013 and 2012 respectively), Valeria Luiselli immediately joined the ranks of the best and smartest writers at work today. Having established a style that combines essay with memoir, fiction, and urban exploration, Luiselli soon delighted English-language readers of McSweeney's, The New Yorker, and The New York Times, and her work also appeared in Where You Are, the wonderfully curated collection of maps in writing and art.
