Publisher Comments:

In the no-man’s-land of Mexico’s far north—harsh desert landscapes, bruising border towns, urban wastelands and fantastical rural villages—migrants, campesinos and travelers find themselves lost between reality and delirium, tragedy and exaltation.

Ten stories with an unflinching gaze onto the fragility and brutality of life: a tabloid journalist tracks a pair of homeless lovers; a blackout extinguishes the lights of Monterrey, unleashing anxieties and criminal tendencies; a visiting teacher in a remote village witnesses a brutal incident of vigilante justice; a desperate young boy crosses the border in search of a father lost to the North.

Eduardo Antonio Parra (León, Guanajuato, 1965) is the author of two collections of stories and -winner of Mexico’s National Prize for the Short Story.

Synopsis:

Stories from northern Mexico, the apocalyptic urban zones and desert landscapes just south of the border.
