Celebrating the 400th anniversary of the modern novel, Akashic Books publishes a Don Quixote for the era of graft: racketeering politicians, stolen elections, and total-bullshit recalls!
Fast Eddie is a convoluted Oedipal adventure blending low-brow scenarios with high-art diction, reminiscent of Robert Coover, John Hawkes, and Edmund White.
The scintillating stand-alone sequel to Arellano’s 2010 Edgar Award finalist, Havana Lunar.
A literary crime novel on the last island of socialism, during a period of intense depseration.
