Maria Venegas

 

In this interview with Granta.com, Maria Venegas discusses ‘Bullet Proof Vest’, her essay from Granta 108: ‘Chicago’ about her criminal father, who ‘shot a man when he was twelve years old’ and with whom she has recently reconnected after an absence of sixteen years. She also explains the ‘key to writing good non-fiction’ and her sense of Chicago.
