Staff Reviews

One of the great novels of Latin American literature and a touchstone for surrealist writers the world over, Pedro Páramo is a haunting journey through memory, loss, and grief. Its critique of authoritarianism remains as pertinent today as the day it was published. Gorgeously translated by the renowned Rulfo scholar Douglas J. Weatherford, this new Grove Press edition includes an introduction by Gabriel García Marquez that should be all the convincing you need to put this novel at the top of your reading list.

"One of the best novels in Hispanic literature, and in literature as a whole."--Jorge Luis BorgesThe highly influential masterpiece of Latin American literature, now published in a new, authoritative translation, and featuring a foreword by Gabriel Garc a M rquezA 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.
