by György Spiró
Translated from the Hungarian by Tim Wilkinson
Winner of the Aegon Literary Award
“Captivity is a complex and fast-paced tale of Jewish life in the early first century, a sort of sword-and-sandals saga as reimagined by Henry Roth. The narrative follows Uri from Rome to Jerusalem and back, from prospectless dreamer to political operative to pogrom survivor—who along the way also happens to dine with Herod Antipas and Pontius Pilate and get thrown into a cell with a certain Galilean rabble-rouser. Hungarian György Spiró’s deft combination of philosophical inquiry and page-turning brio should overcome that oft-mentioned American timidity toward books in translation.”

by Carlos Velázquez
Translated from the Spanish by Achy Obejas
"The Cowboy Bible will challenge readers to push beyond cultural stereotypes and rethink everything they know about northern Mexico and their homes."
“Playful and clever, inventive but familiar, this brief book is deeply satisfying, and warrants multiple readings.… In her translation, Obejas superbly amplifies Velázquez's style.”
