In 2016 Yuri Herrera’s English-language debut Signs Preceding the End of the World won the 2016 Best Translated Book Award, and achieved great critical success, as did its follow up The Transmigration of Bodies. Herrera’s latest novel Kingdom Cons completes his loose trilogy of border novels. Part surreal fable and part crime romance, this prize-winning novel questions the price of keeping your integrity in a world ruled by patronage and power. Francisco Goldman calls Herrera “Mexico’s greatest novelist,” while the New York Times calls his work “suspenseful… outlandish and heartbreaking.” Herrera presents his latest book, followed by a discussion and Q&A.
