Faces in the Crowd

by Valeria Luiselli

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 29/05/2014

RRP  $36.99 $36.25
Luiselli's novel (originally published in Mexico) has been released to great acclaim abroad and has been translated for and published in the UK, Portugal, Italy, Brazil, France, Germany, The Netherlands, and Israel

Alma Guillermoprieto called Luiselli "one of the most important new voices in Mexican writing" at BEA and Luiselli is similarly known to and beloved by Latin American writers and venues including PEN America, the Americas Society, and the Mexican Cultural Institute

Luiselli's work is well known to bilingual Spanish language readers (including invitations to appear at Instituto Cervantes in Chicago and the Spanish language bookclub at McNally Jackson)

Luiselli is an engaging and articulate explicator of her work and has made major appearances in support of it including the Hay Festival in the UK and festivals in Germany, Mexico, and Japan. She is connected to and has already seen interest from PEN World Voices for an appearance there

While the book is in translation, the bulk of the action takes places in New York, making it a very American novel, and fascinating for the perspective of an outsider looking in

We are making a major push into translation, this will be published simultaneously with Luiselli's essays, which inform the novel

Will include an essay
