Juan Rulfo, the Centro Mexicano de Escritores, and the Cold War in the press

The apparent oddity of Juan Rulfo having received CIA dollars, revealed in the essay I recently published with S-USIH, has been making the rounds in the Mexican and international press. Here were some of the early stories.

Then Alejo Schapire of Radio Francia Internacional sent me some interesting follow-up questions, and the interview was published here.

Geney Beltrán Félix did another interview for Confabulario de El Universal, which appeared alongside a translation of the S-USIH essay.

This also blew up on twitter, after the writer Heriberto Yépez accused me of being a secret right-wing plant set out to destroy the good reputation of Juan Rulfo. L.D. Burnett storified the whole thing here.
