A story collection drawn from across her career brings into English for the first time the extraordinary stylistic and thematic range of the Mexican writer and MacArthur “genius” Cristina Rivera Garza.“One of Mexico’s greatest living writers,” wrote Jonathan Lethem in 2018 about Cristina Rivera Garza, “we are just barely beginning to catch up to what she has to offer.” In the years since, Rivera Garza has been awarded a MacArthur “Genius Grant” for fiction that “interrogates culturally constructed notions of language, memory, and gender from a transnational perspective,” and was finalist for the 2020 National Book Critics’ Circle Award for Criticism. New and Selected Stories now brings together in English translation stories from across Rivera Garza’s career, including new writing not yet published in Spanish. It is a unique and remarkable body of work, and a window onto the ever-evolving stylistic and thematic development of one of the boldest, most original and affecting writers in the world today.
