Readers DigestEduardo Halfon is a brilliant storyteller.

DANIEL ALARCN, author of At Night We Walk in CirclesIn Monastery, the nomadic narrator of Eduardo Halfons critically-acclaimed The Polish Boxer returns to travel from Guatemalan cities, villages, coffee plantations, and border towns to a private jazz concert in New Yorks Harlem, a former German U-Boat base on the French Breton coast, and Israel, where he escapes from his sisters Orthodox Jewish wedding into an erotic adventure with the enigmatic Tamara.

His passing encounters are unforgettable; his relationships, problematic.

At once a world citizen and a writer who mistrusts the power of language, he is pursued by historys ghosts and unanswerable questions.

He is a cartographer of identity on a compelling journey to an uncertain destination.

As he draws and redraws his boundaries, he confronts us with the limitations of our own.

Eduardo Halfon was named one of the best young Latin American writers by the Hay Festival of Bogot and is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and the prestigious Jos Mara de Pereda Prize for the Short Novel.

The Polish Boxer, his first book to appear in English, was a New York Times Editors Choice selection and finalist for the International Latino Book Award.

Halfon is currently the Harman Writer in Residence at Baruch College in New York and travels frequently between his homes in Nebraska and Guatemala.
