About the Author

Mauro Javier Cárdenas is the author of The Revolutionaries Try Again, which The New York Times called "an original, insubordinate novel." In 2017, the Hay Festival included him in Bogotá39, a selection of the best young Latin American novelists working today.

Reviews

Cárdenas undercuts the idea of a single, stable identity and suggests the self as a many-layered work in progress . . . Original, richly felt, deftly written. Highly recommended. --Kirkus (Starred Review)

Mauro Javier Cárdenas's Aphasia batters at the limits of guilt, of masculinity, of love and promiscuity, of the American family and English syntax." --Nicole Krauss, author To Be a Man and The History of Love

Mauro Javier Cárdenas has knocked down the novel as we know it, and built a cathedral out of the debris. Aphasia is monumental, funny, potent, and fresh. It marks a new beginning." --Carlos Fonseca, author Natural History

"Brainy and decadent, playful and outrageous, Aphasia marks the comeback of the Self in a spiraling trip into contemporary manhood and the Latin American spirit that will render you speechless." --Pola Oloixarac, author Dark Constellations
