In the latest Granta podcast, we’re joined by Juan Pablo Villalobos, author of Down the Rabbit Hole, which was nominated for the 2011 Guardian First Book Award and, most recently, Quesadillas.

Here, Villalobos talks about parodying Mexican identity, the difficulty of translation and class struggle in Mexico.

‘The worst thing wasn’t being poor; the worst thing was having no idea of the things you can do with money.’
