Death of Carlos Monsiváis

Dear friends who speak languages other than Spanish, I’ll share my sorrow in English. A great mind with a great heart has just died in Mexico. An analyst with feelings, a chronicler with a critical love for his country and his people. Through his work we learn about ourselves, we find our weaknesses and draw necessary diagnostics of our failures, and at the same time, we can appreciate the many gifts of our strong culture

My country has lost Carlos Monsiváis, one of its most brilliant voices. We have. For me, this is a night of tears. Goodbye, Monsi. Goodbye.
