The Femicide Machine, Sergio González Rodríguez trans. Michael Parker-Stainback (2012)

There is a well-known verse from the Costa Chica of Guerrero and Oaxaca:

Through the watercress
The wind came and twisted me;
There are days when I twist, I twist,
Days when I’ve been twisted;
Now to untwist myself
I’ll simply twist you around.

The journalism in the Femicide Machine reveals how horrific violence and corruption has become systematically normalized in regions of Mexico, where the ideal of the free individual has culminated in the freedom to annihilate others.

Sergio González Rodríguez is a writer, journalist and critic for the Mexico City newspaper Reforma. His works include Bones in the Desert, The  Flight, and The Iguala 43 (Semiotext(e)).
