To celebrate the Year of Mexico in the UK and the Year of the UK inMexico in 2015, Hay Festival, the British Council and Conacultahave joined forces to bring twenty young Mexican writers under the age offorty, paired with twenty British translators, to an international readership.

Broken families, a manin a birdcage, a lone swimmer-these stories betray a quest for the self whenthe feeling of loss pervades. Pushkin Press is proud to present these vibrantand moving narratives from modern Mexico. Adding to the already vastliterary tradition of their country with brave new styles, the writerscapture an era of shifting boundaries and growing violence, where Mexico’srapid modernization is often felt to be at the cost of its artistic heritage.
