No Man's Land
No Man's Land
Selected Stories
Translated by Christopher Winks

In the no-man's-land of Mexico's far north-harsh desert landscapes, bruising border towns, urban wastelands and fantastical rural villages-migrants, campesinos and travelers find themselves lost between reality and delirium, tragedy and exaltation.

Ten stories with an unflinching gaze onto the fragility and brutality of life: a tabloid journalist tracks a pair of homeless lovers; a blackout extinguishes the lights of Monterrey, unleashing anxieties and criminal tendencies; a visiting teacher in a remote village witnesses a brutal incident of vigilante justice; a desperate young boy crosses the border in search of a father lost to the North.

Eduardo Antonio Parra (Leon, Guanajuato, 1965) is the author of two collections of stories and -winner of Mexico's National Prize for the Short Story.
