Kingdom Cons

"Herrera is Mexico's greatest novelist." —Francisco Goldman

"Herrera's novels are like little lights in a vast darkness. I want to see whatever he shows me." —Stephen Sparks, Green Apple Books


"The Transmigration of Bodies goes straight for the soul." —John Powers, NPR Fresh Air

In the court of the King, everyone knows their place. But as the Artist wins hearts and egos with his ballads, uncomfortable truths emerge that shake the Kingdom to its core. Part surreal fable and part crime romance, this prize-winning novel from Yuri Herrera questions the price of keeping your integrity in a world ruled by patronage and power.
