A Zero-Sum Game

By Eduardo Rabasa, Christina MacSweeney

Debut from Mexico20-nominated author examines humanity's dark side in fatalistic satire of consumer society and the cult of the individual.

"Outstanding political fantasy. Eduardo Rabasa has written a futuristic novel set in the present; its inventiveness is not based on new technologies but rather on new kinds of relationships." — Juan Villoro

A hilarious satire and universal exploration of the origins of power and corruption. A Zero-Sum Game uses the highly-charged election for the presidency of a residents' committee and the influence of a powerful stranger to both expose those in power and to sympathize with individuals who find themselves caught in the paradox of empowerment and impotence that is modern consumer society and the democratic state.

Eduardo Rabasa is the founding editorial director of Sexto Piso, Mexico's most prominent independent publishing house, and was selected to the Hay Festival's México20 list of the greatest Mexican authors under the age of forty.
