Book Description

The latest extraordinary novella from 'Mexico?s greatest novelist?. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

  • "My favorite of the new Mexican writers." John Powers, NPR Fresh Air

  • "Short, suspenseful . . . outlandish and heartbreaking." John Williams, New York Times

  • "Herrera packs his slim book with the sex, booze and nihilism of a better Simenon novella." Sam Sacks, Wall Street Journal

  • "The Transmigration of Bodies takes the conventions of gumshoe fiction and transfers them to a charnel-house world that makes nonsense of the genre's habitual moral opposites." Bookforum

  • "Herrera's metaphors grasp the freedom, and the alarming disorientation, of transition and translation." Maya Jaggi, The Guardian

  • "Yuri Herrera's tiny, beautiful novels each conjure myth and metaphor from a contemporary experience in a precise location, transformed by archaic-colloquial prose." Lorna Scott-Fox, Times Literary Supplement

  • "Playful, prophetic, unnerving books that deserve to be read several times." Eileen Battersby, Irish Times

  • "Darkly satisfying." James Lasdun, The Guardian

  • "Yuri Herrera combines a dreamlike setting with vigorous style." Anthony Cummins, Times Literary Supplement

  • "Mesmerising & stunningly crafted, 5 stars!" Rebecca Choudhury, Waterstones Birmingham


    "Razor sharp and inimitable - crafted in a way that resembles fable - Kingdom Cons is set in the wake of chaos around the border: the border between two particular countries, yes, but also between worlds, between possibilities, and between ways of seeing." John Ganiard, Literati Bookstore, Ann Arbor MI

    "Yuri Herrera is a master of the literary arts. His ability to capture the mind's eye and weave an indelible image and story is uncanny. This, his third novel, might be his best yet. In Kingdom Cons, Herrera delivers a stunning example of how art can dissolve boundaries and speak truth to power." Matt Keliher, Subtext Books, St Paul, MN

    "Kingdom Cons is revelatory. I think Yuri Herrera has created his own genre. The mix of high and low culture, the argot of the streets with the poetic narrative - it's something else. Mexico as a hallucination." Mark Haber, Brazos Bookstore, Houston, TX
