"Valeria Luiselli is a writer of formidable talent, destined to
be an important voice in Latin American letters. Her vision and
language are precise, and the power of her intellect is in evidence
on every page."--Daniel Alarcon
"I'm completely captivated by the beauty of the paragraphs, the
elegance of the prose, the joy in the written word, and the
literary sense of this author."--Enrique Vilas-Matas
Valeria Luiselli is an evening cyclist; a literary tourist in
Venice, searching for Joseph Brodsky's tomb; an excavator of her
own artifacts, unpacking from a move. In essays that are as
companionable as they are ambitious, she uses the city to exercise
a roving, meandering intelligence, seeking out the questions
embedded in our human landscapes.
Valeria Luiselli was born in Mexico City in 1983 and grew up in
South Africa. Her novel and essays have been translated into many
languages and her work has appeared in publications including the
"New York Times," "Granta," and "McSweeney's." Some of her recent
projects include a ballet performed by the New York City Ballet in
Lincoln Center; a pedestrian sound installation for the Serpentine
Gallery in London; and a novella in installments for workers in a
juice factory in Mexico. She lives in New York City.
