TODAY? I'd say fucking pewdiepie. He sure is known by more spaniards than any given currently alive authors.I'm sure they'll continue to do their damnedest. As foreigner my view is that there's enough external investment in the nation for the rest of the world to never allow disintegration.
I've read plenty of Spanish and Basque literature. Most recently published was written decades before I was born and I know near nothing about the current landscape of your national literature. If you know who would you say are the predominant voices in fiction writing and poetry today?
Jokes aside. Personally my book backlog is fucking filled with foreign stuff, and I know the one of most spaniards I know is too. We have some really good translators so for the most part the most influential authors in spain are the same as internationally. As for spanish authors, I've heard a lot about Perez-Reberte and Aramburu, but to be honest current spanish literature is kinda garbage nowadays, as is most international literature if I'm honest. Most of our good writers either go for songs, comedy, comics or videogames. The book market's just gone to hell as it has in most areas. We are really good at songs, comedy, comics and videogames though, and decent at cinematography (though A3 Media's corruption has fucked that over a tad.)
