Les Bandits by Jorge Volpi is since the last week available in French Bookstores. The publishing house Seuil brings this novel, originally published in Spain in 2014 by Alfaguara, to French readers.
The novel was translated from the Spanish by Gabriel Laculli, who is known for translating classics like Cervantes and Lorca as well as contemporary authors such as Volpi and Sergio Pitol, among others.
Memorial del engaño is a daring novel, full of deception and traps, with which the author, currently one of the most outstanding names in Latin-America, enquires into the origins of one the most disastrous economic catastrophes in history and mixes the family saga with the thriller or noir novel.
International rights have also been sold in Italy (Arnoldo Mondadori) and in Poland (Sonia Draga).
