Read full description of the books:



The much-anticipated English-language debut of "one of the most original and entertaining voices of contemporary Mexican literature"(Revista Gatopardo): a collection of surreal, ironic, and madcap stories about the comedy and brutal tragedies of life in Mexico.

The provocateur and cult sensation Carlos Velázquez has earned comparisons to Hunter S. Thompson, Charles Bukowski, and William S. Burroughs, and has been called "a grand storyteller" (Diario Jornada), "an icon" (Frente), and "one of the most original and entertaining voices of contemporary Mexican literature" (Revista Gatopardo). His English-language debut, a collection of seven surreal, unrelentingly ironic, and unsettling tales, portrays the comedy and brutal tragedies of a region that occupies a unique place in the North American imagination.

Akin to Márquez's Macondo or Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County, PopSTock! is a fictional northern Mexican territory where Velázquez's stories take place. In addition to their common setting, central to each of these stories is the The Cowboy Bible -- a magical object that can drastically change shape. The Cowboy Bible first appears as the talisman of a Santer's a-practicing luchador, DJ, and art critic, but later morphs into an unbeatable marathon drinker, a reality television show in which contestants must burn pirated CDs at top speed, and the leather for a pair of boots so coveted that it leads a man to grant the devil a night with his wife. With these otherworldly scenarios, pop culture references, and Velázquez's linguistic inventiveness, The Cowboy Bible is a brazen social and political commentary on modern Mexican reality.

Carlos Velázquez (Coahuila, 1978) es autor de los libros de cuentos Cuco Sánchez blues (2004) y La Biblia Vaquera (nombrado entre los libros del año en 2009 por el periódico Reforma). Según Sergio González Rodríguez «es el libro que el norte inventó para explicarse a sí mismo» y está llamado «a cambiar la recepción y la percepción de la literatura mexicana y sus aires de altísima cultura hecha de mausoleos» (suplemento El Ángel), y que en palabras de Rafael Lemus, «es el producto más divertido e iconoclasta de la narrativa norteña» (Letras Libres). Velázquez recibió el Premio Nacional de Cuento Magdalena Mondragón y ha sido antologado en el Anuario de poesía mexicana 2007 del Fondo de Cultura Económica.
