An essay of mine on the work of Mexican novelist Yuri Herrera called “Kingdoms of the Border” was published in the most recent issue of Full Stop Quarterly. It presents Herrera’s border trilogy of novels, centered on the first written, last translated “Kingdom Cons.”
I’ve been a fan of Yuri Herrera’s writing for a while so it was great to take a dive into his growing body of work and commentary on that work in both English and Spanish.
The Winter 2017/18 issue of Full Stop Quarterly is available for sale as a digital edition. The work of the other contributors includes interesting, well-written essays on topics as diverse as the origins of the zombie myth in the Haitian revolution and how artists are responding to climate change.
