Cristina Rivera Garza w/ Mauro Javier Cardenas

November 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Mexican writer Cristina Rivera Garza discusses her new novel, The Iliac Crest, with Mauro Javier Cardenas.

Praise for The Iliac Crest

“An intelligent, beautiful story about bodies disguised as a story about language disguised as a story about night terrors. Cristina Rivera Garza does not respect what is expected of a writer, of a novel, of language. She is an agitator.” —Yuri Herrera, author of Kingdom Cons

“Like the ocean itself, Cristina Rivera Garza writes a world where borders shift and dissolve. In the curves of the fantastic, the highest realism is born. This world is weird. This world is so deeply true. Reader, I love this wholly perfect book.”—Samantha Hunt, author of Mr. Splitfoot

“Warning: Cristina Rivera Garza is an explosive writer yet to be fully accounted for in English. She is an insubordinate stylist, a skilled creator of atmospheric and haunting language, and The Iliac Crest is a willfully queer piece where the workings of her wild imagination destabilize everything.” —Lina Meruane, author of Seeing Red
