The transmigration of bodies

by Yuri Herrera | 07 July 2016
PAPERBACK
Shortlisted for the 2017 Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize Shortlisted for the 2018 International Dublin Literary Award A plague has brought death to the city. Two feuding crime families with blood on their hands need our hard-boiled hero, The Redeemer, to broker peace. Both his instincts and the vacant streets warn him to stay indoors, but The Redeemer ventures out into the city's underbelly to arrange for the exchange of the bodies they hold hostage. Yuri Herrera's novel is a response to the violence of contemporary Mexico. With echoes of Romeo and Juliet , Roberto Bolaño and Raymond Chandler, The Transmigration of Bodies is a noirish tragedy and a tribute to those bodies - loved, sanctified, lusted after, and defiled - that violent crime has touched.
