Natural History, Carlos Fonseca, trans. Megan McDowell (2020)
From Carlos Fonseca comes a dazzling, kaleidoscopic epic of art, politics, and hidden realities.
Natural History is the portrait of a world trapped between faith and irony, between tragedy and farce. A defiantly contemporary and impressively ambitious novel in the tradition of Italo Calvino and Ricardo Piglia, it confirms Carlos Fonseca as one of the most daring writers of his generation.
