Product description


"Kingdom Cons displays...a gritty and highly stylized realism played out by dramatic, archetypal characters [and] exemplifies, in a host of ways, what leads people to delusional behavior."

-- "Culture Trip"

"[A] cunning little drama about the line separating art from agitprop."

-- "Wall Street Journal"

"Herrera combines a dreamlike setting with vigorous style."

-- "Times Literary Supplement (London)"

"Herrera is a jumbler of cultural forms, both literary and vernacular. Kingdom Cons is narrated with a bardic omniscience, a mythopoetic tone satisfyingly coarsened by slangy dialogue. The musicality of the prose turns the slim novel into its own kind of narcocorrido."

-- "Americas Quarterly"

"His writing style is like nobody else's, a unique turn of language, a kind of poetic slang."

-- "New York Times"

"Short, suspenseful...outlandish and heartbreaking."

-- "New York Times Book Review"

"Strikingly beautiful and thematically rich...the novel is a powerful and memorable meditation on the social and economic value of art in a world ruled by the pursuit of power."

-- "Publishers Weekly"
