The Witch is dead. And the discovery of her corpse has the whole village investigating the murder. As the novel unfolds in a dazzling linguistic torrent, with each unreliable narrator lingering on new details, new acts of depravity or brutality, Melchor extracts some tiny shred of humanity from these characters--inners whom most people would write off as irredeemable--forming a lasting portrait of a damned Mexican village. Like Roberto Bolano's 2666 or Faulkner's novels, Hurricane Season takes place in a world saturated with mythology and violence--real violence, the kind that seeps into the soil, poisoning everything around: it's a world that becomes more and more terrifying the deeper you explore it.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Fernanda MelchorPublisher: New Directions Publishing CorporationPublished: 10/06/2020ISBN: 9780811230735Pages: 224Weight: 0.70lbsSize: 7.90h x 5.40w x 0.60d
