A quick couple of translated works

These two short translated novels from Spanish might be "something completely different" you might like to read this summer.




Signs Preceding the End of the World by Yuri Herrera is a story about a teenage girl making the dangerous crossing to the U.S. to find her brother who made the journey years before.
Timely, considering the Mexican border problems we are seeing in the news today
.








The Story of My Teeth by Valeria Luiselli is a novel like nothing you have ever read before. It begins with the birth of Gustavo who was born with 4 premature teeth.
As you can guess, teeth are central to the story that is filled with allegories. Be sure to read the afterward -- it explains a lot.
