Valeria Luiselli's extraordinary debut novel signals the arrival of a major talent. The novel's fragmented, poetic narrative immediately engages and slowly reveals its secrets. Is this a story of a woman discovering a forgotten Latin poet of the Harlem Renaissance? Is the woman imagined by the poet? Are they both ghosts in search of some way back to the real? Written in Spanish and exquisitely translated by Christina MacSweeney, FACES IN THE CROWD is a fresh and essential voice in the Latin American canon.
