Unlikely to Be Available


A story collection drawn from across her career brings into English for the first time the extraordinary stylistic and thematic range of the Mexican writer and MacArthur genius Cristina Rivera Garza.

One of Mexico's greatest living writers, wrote Jonathan Lethem in 2018, we are just barely beginning to catch up to what she has to offer. In the years since, Rivera Garza's work has received widespread recognition: she was awarded a MacArthur Genius Grant for fiction that interrogates culturally constructed notions of language, memory, and gender from a transnational perspective, and was a finalist for the 2020 National Book Critics Circle Award for Criticism. Yet we have still only started to discover the full range of a writer who is at once an incisive voice on migration, borders, and violence against women, as well as a high stylist in the manner of Lispector or Duras.

New and Selected Stories now brings together in English translation stories from across Rivera Garza's career, drawing from three collections spanning over thirty years and including new writing not yet published in Spanish. It is a unique and remarkable body of work, and a window into the ever-evolving stylistic and thematic development of one of the boldest, most original, and affecting writers in the world today.
