Israel Centeno in B O D Y

While more contemporary Latin American writers have found their way into English translation following the Bolaño phenomenon there are still major talents without a toe let alone a foot in the door and major blank spaces on the map. This brings us to Venezuelan writer Israel Centeno, whose work Aurelio Major, co-founding editor of Granta en Español, refers to as “one of the great undiscovered literary experiences of Latin America.”


Well, now you can discover this experience by reading the opening pages of The Conspiracy, the story of a leftist revolutionary shooting at and missing the President and what happens to him afterwards. The book is just coming out from Phoneme Media.
