May 23, 2013 7:00pmLuis Negrón Book Tour Thursday, May 23th @ 7:00pm Elliott Bay Book Company 1521 Tenth Avenue
Puerto Rican author Luis Negrón will be speaking about his debut collection of short stories, Mundo Cruel, already a sensation in Latin America and available in English for the first time, at Elliott Bay Book Company on Thursday, May 28th.
Mundo Cruel, Luis Negrón’s debut book, elegantly presents to its readers a world both tragic and outrageous. Masterfully satirical with a discrete solemnity at its core, Mundo Cruel‘s most remarkable element is its language. Several of its stories feature unnamed protagonists brought to life by their speech—colloquial, self-incriminating, and idiosyncratic—revealing Negrón’s mesmerizing talent for conjuring the spoken word in all its subtlety.
Luis will be available for question and answer, as well as book signings. To find out more about the event, visit the Elliott Bay event page.
