Product description

Review

A key pleasure of The Polish Boxer is that of revelation... The power of The Polish Boxer is that it is always rooted in the personal. It is deeply accessible, deeply moving (The Los Angeles Times)

These are the stories of life... the question of survival (of both people and cultures) and the way the fictional makes the real bearable and intelligible (Publishers Weekly)

It is not often that one encounters such a mix of personal engagement and literary passion, or pain and tenderness (Andrés Neuman, author of Traveler of the Century)

About the Author

Eduardo Halfon has been cited as among the best young Latin American writers by the Hay Festival of Bogotá and is the recipient of Spain's prestigious José María de Pereda Prize for the Short Novel.

In 2011 he received a Guggenheim Fellowship to continue the story of The Polish Boxer, which is his first book to be published in English. He travels frequently to his native Guatemala and lives in Nebraska.
