“La Gloria” by Eric Stener Carlson

performed by Eric Stener Carlson

“I was inspired to write ‘La Gloria’ ten years ago, while living through the flu epidemic in Argentina. Like today, I was quarantined with my family in our apartment. The streets were empty, the cinemas abandoned. There was a run on surgical masks and alcohol gel. These things are familiar to most of us by now. But, in my story, I imagined something different. I imagined a new sort of flu, to which the excluded people of the world, those who were most discriminated against and abandoned, were immune.” – Eric Stener Carlson about “La Gloria”
