Kleffel, who runs the book review site The Agony Column, visited Zócalo to chat with Carlos Ruiz Zafón, author of The Angel’s Game and The Shadow of the Wind, whom he called "one of our most read and best loved writers." Zafón, whose books have been translated into more than 40 languages and published around the world, chatted about his life, his inspiration, and his work.

Zafón recalled that as a child, he was constantly writing. "What always interested me is language, codes, systems, structures — I wanted to figure out how those things work," he said. From music to numbers to words, each code expresses ideas and emotions, Zafón explained. Storytelling, to him, was the most magical of these codes. "Just with ink and paper you could create stories and worlds and universes."
