Signs Preceding the End of the World by Yuri Herrera

In This Fruitful Darkness

‘Yuri Herrera’s novella Señales que precederán al fin del mundo is a special case: a work for which translation is a logical extension of its rationale. What I mean is this: when a work is so concerned with arduous journeys, borders, transculturalism and the underworld, reading a version of that work rebirthed in a new form after it has undergone its own transformation is quite fitting.’ Elizabeth Bryer on Signs Preceding the End of the World.
