Staff Reviews


Pedro Páramo is a fever dream. Disembodied voices hold the town of Comala together and you are tossed right into the fog of it all. The writing is fragmented and weird, and although it might jar you, it is best to succumb to it. It is supposed to slowly unveil in front of you, but it’ll be stubborn in giving you real answers. Pedro’s life are unfinished earthly hopes that entangle with grief felt in the afterlife. A beautiful classic that will stay with me forever

Description


NATIONAL BESTSELLER - SOON TO BE A NETFLIX FILM

"One of the best novels in Hispanic literature, and in literature as a whole." --Jorge Luis Borges

The highly influential masterpiece of Latin American literature, now published in a new, authoritative translation, and featuring a foreword by Gabriel Garc a M rquez

A masterpiece of the surreal that influenced a generation of writers in Latin America, Pedro P ramo is the otherworldly tale of one man's quest for his lost father. That man swears to his dying mother that he will find the father he has never met--Pedro P ramo--but when he reaches the town of Comala, he finds it haunted by memories and hallucinations. There emerges the tragic tale of P ramo himself, and the town whose every corner holds the taint of his rotten soul. Although initially published to a quiet reception, Pedro P ramo was soon recognized as a major novel that has served as a touchstone text for writers including Mario Vargas Llosa and Jos Donoso. Now published in a new translation from the definitive Spanish edition by celebrated Rulfo scholar Douglas J. Weatherford, and featuring a foreword by Gabriel Garc a M rquez, this new edition of the novel cements its place as one of the seminal literary texts of the twentieth century.
