Gonzalo C. Garcia is a PhD graduate from Kent. His interests are neo-liberal reforms in Chile in relation to cultural authenticity, memory, nostalgia, and historical trauma. He wrote his first novel in Canterbury alongside a theoretical thesis involving identity reconstructions in indigenous communities living in urban spaces. He is currently living in Santiago, Chile, where he has just finished a novel called We Are The End, a book heavily influenced by his marked interest in the relationship between video games, digital culture and everyday constructions of narrative. He writes all of his work in English.
