Among Strange Victims

By (author) Daniel Saldaña Par?s, Translated by Christina MacSweeney

""Brief, brilliantly written, and kissed by a sense of the a much lazier, Mexico City version of Dostoevsky's Underground Man.""—<B>John Powers, <I>Fresh Air</I></B><BR><BR>“Daniel Saldaña París knows how to talk about those other tragedies populating daily life: a boring, unwanted marriage; mind numbing office work; family secrets. He builds on those bricks of tedium a greatly enjoyable and splendidly well-written suburban farce.” <B>—Yuri Herrera</B><BR><BR><p>Rodrigo likes his vacant lot, its resident chicken, and being left alone. But when passivity finds him accidentally married to Cecilia, he trades Mexico City for the sun-bleached desolation of his hometown and domestic life with Cecilia for the debauched company of a poet, a philosopher, and Micaela, whose allure includes the promise of time travel. Earthy, playful, and sly, <I>Among Strange Victims </I>is a psychedelic ode to the pleasures of not measuring up.</p><p><B>Daniel Saldaña París </B>(born Mexico City, 1984) is an essayist, poet, and novelist whose work has been translated into English, French, and Swedish and anthologized, most recently in <I>Mexico20: New Voices, Old Traditions</I>, published in the United Kingdom by Pushkin Press. <I>Among Strange Victims </I>is his first novel to appear in the United States. He lives in Montreal, Quebec.<br>
