Basura (Trash)

Sylvia Aguilar Zéleny
International rights: Fiction
The lives of three women make up this raw story by Mexican author Sylvia Aguilar Zéleny. A shocking novel, with a vertiginous orality, about marginality and the ties that are established between those who live in a hostile territory.

With a magnificent gift for orality, and with echoes of Fernanda Melchor and Cristina Rivera Garza, Sylvia Aguilar Zéleny manages to insinuate brutality rather than narrate it. With precise doses of suspense and moments of unprecedented tenderness, "Basursa" (Trash) is a novel that explores marginality, abandonment, violence and everything that happens in border territory.
