The Booker Prize loves novels written in the phonetically-spelled, faux-naif dialect of uneducated, socioeconomically disadvantaged people, the other examples being Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha by Roddy Doyle and How Late it Was, How Late by James Kelman. Okay, so they’ve only given these sorts of books the prize 3 times in 25 years, but that’s still way more than the reading public likes them.


The Surrender is Scott Esposito’s “collection of facts” concerning his lifelong desire to be a woman.


Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.

3 never-before-published essays, including “The Digression”—a 4,000-word piece on the most important digression in César Aira’s career.
