The Witch is dead. After a group of children playing near the irrigation canals discover her decomposing corpse, the village of La Matosa is rife with rumours about how and why this murder occurred. As the novel unfolds in a dazzling linguistic torrent, Fernanda Melchor paints a moving portrait of lives governed by poverty and violence, machismo and misogyny, superstition and prejudice. Written with an infernal lyricism that is as affecting as it is enthralling, Hurricane Season, Melchor’s first novel to appear in English, is a formidable portrait of Mexico and its demons, brilliantly translated by Sophie Hughes.
‘Brutal, relentless, beautiful, fugal, Hurricane Season explores the violent mythologies of one Mexican village and reveals how they touch the global circuitry of capitalist greed. This is an inquiry into the sexual terrorism and terror of broken men. This is a work of both mystery and critique. Most recent fiction seems anaemic by comparison.’
Ben Lerner, author of The Topeka School
Description du produit
Revue de presse
'A brutal portrait of small-town claustrophobia, in which machismo is a prison and corruption isn't just institutional but domestic ... Melchor's long, snaking sentences make the book almost literally unputdownable.'- Anthony Cummins, Observer
'I found it impossible to look away. Hurricane Season unfurls with the pressure and propulsion of an unforeseen natural disaster, the full force of Melchor s arresting voice captured in Sophie Hughes masterful translation. Lucy Scholes, Financial Times
'Almost instantly hailed as a modern classic of Mexican literature upon its publication, Hurricane Season can finally unleash its torrent upon English-language readers. Quite the apt title.'- Irish Times
'The novel takes place in the modern day, but Melchor has created a dark myth that reads like it was conjured eons in the past.- AV Club

'Fernanda Melchor has a powerful voice, and by powerful I mean unsparing, devastating, the voice of someone who writes with rage, and has the skill to pull it off.' - Samanta Schweblin, author of Fever Dream
'Hurricane Season is a tremendously vital piece of work. Searing and urgent and cut through with pain, this is storytelling as reportage; a loud memorial to the unheard victims of a society in crisis. Fernanda Melchor and Sophie Hughes have achieved something remarkable here.' - Jon McGregor, author of Reservoir 13
'Propelled by a violent lyricism and stunning immediacy, Hurricane Season maps out a landscape in which social corrosion acquires a mythical shape. This masterful portrayal of contemporary Mexico, so vertiginous and bewitching it pulls you into its spiritual abyss from the opening page, is brilliantly rendered into English by Sophie Hughes. Fernanda Melchor is a remarkable talent.'- Chloe Aridjis, author of Sea Monsters
'A bravura performance, teeming with life and fury. Melchor takes a single, brutal act and explodes it, giving voice to the legacies of tragedy and violence within, and daring us to look away.'- Sam Byers, author of Perfidious Albion
'Repellent yet compulsive, Hurricane Season is a hell of a force to be reckoned with.' --Claire-Louise Bennett, author of Pond --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition kindle_edition.

A very beautiful and expensive-looking edition of Hurricane Season with great paper quality- heavy and crisp and a semi-jacketed cover. Got it for a steal at Rs. 384
Although, The cover is slightly perforated on the sides and has a few dust specks as if it was handled by dirty hands but its not very noticeable. Overall I'm quite happy with my purchase.
Hurricane Season was a nominee for the International Booker Prize. I recommend this to every fan of transgressive literary fiction.
