Mexico 20: New Voices, Old Traditions

by Various authors
£7.99   paperback  Pushkin Press (2015)

Mexico 20: New Voices, Old Traditions by Various authors To celebrate the Year of Mexico in the UK and the Year of the UK in Mexico in 2015, Hay Festival, the British Council and Conaculta have joined forces to bring twenty young Mexican writers under the age of forty, paired with twenty British translators, to an international readership.
 
Broken families, a man in a birdcage, a lone swimmer-these stories betray a quest for the self when the feeling of loss pervades. Pushkin Press is proud to present these vibrant and moving narratives from modern Mexico. Adding to the already vast literary tradition of their country with brave new styles, the writers capture an era of shifting boundaries and growing violence, where Mexico's rapid modernization is often felt to be at the cost of its artistic heritage.
