    Published: And Other Stories - July 5th, 2016

    Very dark, transgressive and straightforward writing but very absorbing nonetheless. A Romeo and Juliet inspired novel that satirizes violence in Mexico, Transmigration tells the tale of The Redeemer trying to maintain peace between two families, exchanging bodies being held hostage in the process, in a plague-ridden city. Also translated from Spanish, published by And Other Stories (whose goals includes physically publishing literature most other publishers would consider too risky) and received financial assistance from English PEN'S PEN Translates! program (whose goals includes supporting authors globally and to campaign against the persecution and imprisonment of authors expressing their views).
