COUNTRY OF THE MONTH

Mexico

This May we are casting our eyes across the Atlantic, to Mexico. The country that once gave us chocolate and chillies is now producing some of the most exciting and eclectic fiction in translation.

Mexico also has a long, rich history and a troubled and complex present, which has given rise to many eye-opening, world class books of reportage and social history.

We’re displaying a variety of our favourite books from Mexican writers to help you discover this intriguing country.

We are also lucky enough to be joined in the shop by one of their best contemporary novelists, Alvaro Enrigue, fresh from speaking at the Hay Festival, on the 31st of May.

He is widely acknowledged to be one of Mexico’s greatest living writers, having won a number of top prizes for literature in Spanish. His new novel Sudden Death is a postmodern romp about the clash of empires and ideas in the sixteenth century, told over the course of one dazzling tennis match between Caravaggio and the Spanish poet Francisco de Quevedo.
