"Closer to home, the writings of Martínez-Gómez resonate with the work of our Montrealer Gloria Macher (Peruvian-Canadian with a pinch of Brazilian), among which Flor de araribá (Verbum 2017), a story of intrigue, racial and gender discrimination, the horrors of the prison system and agribusiness corruption in a remote region of Brazil and experienced firsthand through the eyes of Marcos, a doctor researching the cholera epidemic.

By writing "La gringa del parque" always keeping in mind that we can claim various cultural identities, I wanted to shake up the conventional definition that links cultural identity exclusively to the country of origin or to the geographical territory.

By sharing their respective symbolic universes with different groups, we promote a sense of common belonging. As is the case with several characters of "La gringa del parque", it creates a solid base to engage socially, politically and economically with the realities of others and our own.

What I wanted to address in my latest novel “La gringa del parque” in relation to the feeling of belonging is the idea that can be attributed to various identities. That one can have feelings of belonging that are not necessarily based on nationalistic or territorial visions, but feelings that are formed in different ways. This means that the human being has the capacity to have several identities within himself. Gloria Macher, writer.

Do you consider writing as a source of inspiration or a discipline? Both. Inspiration is key because without it, you don't maintain the flow necessary to move the story forward. It's like the rhythm you feel when you dance, if you don't have it and you start thinking about what your foot needs to do in the next step, you stop dancing. Discipline is also essential. Without it, you don't get anything, you don't evolve, you don't grow, you don't finish, in short, you can't write.

Talking to Gloria Machar is like reading an adventure book. There is no time for boredom, but rather yes for surprises!

International Latino Book Award - Best EBook Fiction - Spanish or Bilingual The Arteries of Don Fernando

Place : Las Vegas, United States


Date : June 2014


Writer Gloria Macher is recognized in the United States By Abel Fuchslocher


LAS VEGAS, USA. Peruvian-Canadian writer Gloria Macher received the award for best electronic book, fiction category, from the organization Latino Literacy Now. The recognition goes to Las Arterias de Don Fernando.


After the recognition, Gloria Macher said that "to receive an award is to realize that what you have done in your hidden corner has meaning for some, and it puts a big smile on your face, of satisfaction and joy".


Illustrious figures of Latin American letters such as Alma Flor Ada, Isabel Allende, Rudy Anaya, Mary J. Andrade and Edna Iturralde were also honored during the event.


Las Arterias de Don Fernando is a book that portrays Peruvian society with humor and closeness, telling the adventures of its protagonist, Efraín Gonzáles, a young man with enormous ambition (we can say greed) that leads him to exceed his own limits and also those of morality. 


Unfortunately we are surrounded by many Ephraims, they can take several forms: men, women, corporations, countries. Inordinate ambition and the torments of conscience are themes that have always been present in the literature of all nations,” explains the writer.
