Yesterday, The Occidental Observer published a piece authored by me, ‘Enrique Krauze, Mexico’s most prominent public intellectual, hates Trump (and white, Protestant America)’.
This was my comment at the comments section of TOO:
The transcription in Spanish of Krauze’s words can be read: here. Let me tell a couple of personal vignettes.
I met Krauze personally many years ago during a presentation by his publishing house of the latest book by a Cuban dissident.
There was even a time when we were almost neighbors. I lived in Coyoacán, in Mexico City, and ate at a vegetarian restaurant. Walking through the street where, at that time, were the offices of Vuelta (Nobel laureate Octavio Paz’s magazine), more than once I got to see Krauze on his desk as the window of his office was at street level.
And here’s where Octavio Paz (then Krauze’s boss) lived, also in Coyoacán, not far from the magazine’s offices.
Not too bad house for a Mexican poet!
