Signs preceding the end of the world by Yuri Herrera( Book )

30 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yuri Herrera does not simply write about the border between Mexico and the United States and those who cross it. He explores the crossings and translations people make in their minds and language as they move from one country to another, especially when there's no going back. Traversing this lonely territory is Makina, a young woman who knows only too well how to survive in a violent, macho world. Leaving behind her life in Mexico to search for her brother, she is smuggled into the US carrying a pair of secret messages -- one from her mother and one from the Mexican underworld"--Provided by publisher
The transmigration of bodies by Yuri Herrera( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in Spanish and English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yuri Herrera's novel is a response to the violence of contemporary Mexico. With echoes of Romeo and Juliet, Roberto Bolaño and Raymond Chandler, The Transmigration of Bodies is a noirish tragedy and a tribute to those bodies -- loved, sanctified, lusted after, and defiled -- that violent crime has touched."--

29 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lobo, the protagonist of this ... novel about life on the border between Mexico and the United States, has no education to speak of but possesses an amazing talent for converting any notable event into an epic ballad. When the local drug kingpin discovers him, Lobo becomes the kingdom's artist-in-residence. Through his songs, he captures life both within the court and outside of it, and though initially his compositions serve to glorify and popularize the cartel, they eventually play an integral part in its demise"--Publisher description

The transmigration of bodies and Signs preceding the end of the world by Yuri Herrera( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A plague has brought death to the city. Two feuding crime families with blood on their hands need our hard-boiled hero, The Redeemer, to broker peace. Both his instincts and the vacant streets warn him to stay indoors, but The Redeemer ventures out into the city's underbelly to arrange for the exchange of the bodies they hold hostage. Lust and crime and a lack of condoms all feature in this brilliant novella about living in a city filled with the dead, and where no one can distinguish between the guilty and the innocent. A response to the violence of contemporary Mexico, with echoes of Romeo and Juliet, Roberto Bolano and Raymond Chandler, The Transmigration of Bodies is a noir tragedy and a tribute to those bodies - loved, sanctified and defiled - that violent crime has touched. Signs Preceding the End of the World is a masterpiece, haunting and arresting, spare and poetic, a condensed epic about immigration. Yuri Herrera does not simply write about the border between Mexico and the United States and those who cross it. He explores the crossings and translations people make in their minds and language as they move from one country to another, especially when there's no going back. Traversing this lonely territory is Makina, a young woman who knows only too well how to survive in a violent, macho world. Leaving behind her life in Mexico to search for her brother, she is smuggled into the USA carrying a pair of secret messages-one from her mother and one from the Mexican underworld

Der König, die Sonne, der Tod Mexikanische Trilogie by Yuri Herrera( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in German and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

›Der König, die Sonne, der Tod‹ versammelt drei Romane des Mexikaners Yuri Herrera, die ihn zu einem der eigenwilligsten lateinamerikanischen Erzähler der letzten Jahre machen. Die mexikanische Wirklichkeit, die wir aus den Nachrichten kennen - die Welt der Drogenkartelle, der sinnlosen Gewalt, der illegalen Einwanderer in den USA -, ist der Bodensatz, auf dem Herrera seine Geschichten ansiedelt. Auf berückende Weise gelingt es ihm, von Figuren zu erzählen, die sich in dieser Wirklichkeit bewegen und zugleich über ihr zu schweben scheinen - wie El Lobo, der die Tochter des Drogenbosses liebt; wie Makina, die auszieht, die Grenze zu queren; wie Alfaki, der nicht anders kann, als den Dreck wegzumachen. Es sind Erzählungen aus dem Inneren eines Landes, die sich weiten zur grossen Erzählung über das Innerste unserer Welt. (Quelle: books.ch)
