About the Author
Fernando Vallejo, the acclaimed Colombian writer, filmmaker and public intellectual, was born in 1942 in Medellín, Colombia and obtained Mexican nationality in 2007. Author of Our Lady of the Assassins (made into a famous film by Barbet Schroeder), he is renowned in the Spanish-speaking world for his brilliant works and controversial opinions.
The poet Yvette Siegert has also translated The Reef by Juan Villoro and Alejandra Pizarnik's poetry collections A Musical Hell, Diana's Tree, and Extracting the Stone of Madness, for which she won the 2017 Best Translated Book Award.
Reviews
Rooted in heartbreaking experience, crackling with humor, insolence, and diatribes.--Mario Vargas Llosa
Proof that people in Colombia don't read is that Vallejo hasn't been shot yet.--Juan Gabriel Vásquez
Vallejo inserts the violence battering his country into the very language of his text where words are no mere reflection, they are the violence that startles and overwhelms the reader.--Juan Goytisolo
