In Memoriam :: Aura EstradaPublished August 03, 2007 Posted by NewPages
"New Directions mourns the loss of Aura Estrada, essayist and reviewer, wife of Francisco Goldman, and a great friend who helped us publish Roberto Bolano in the United States. One of our finest Spanish language fiction readers and advisors, Estrada died on July 25 in a surfing accident off the coast of Mexico. Her reviews appeared in many publications, including Bookforum and Boston Review, which published her review of two recent New Directions books in its July/August 2007 issue. A brilliant essay by Aura Estrada on Bolano and Borges can be read on the Words Without Borders website."
