The Artist in/and Me Crónica

Susana Chávez-Silverman


This crónica is an homage to a former love, Juan Muñoz Torregrosa, whom I knew in Madrid, when I was in high school. It is a very personal piece, written shortly after I’d begun to access memories of my time with him, with the help of my sister Sarita. As I recount in the crónica, through my sister’s cyber-sleuthing, we found out that Juan had become an internationally-renowned artist. Sadly, we also learnt of his untimely death in 2001. Thus, the only reconnection possible is the one I bring to life in these words, nourished by memory, eros, and imagination.
