“Los Perros” by Lorea Canales

September 16, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

Novelist Lorea Canales presents her hyperrealist tale of love, betrayal, and corruption in Mexico City, Los Perros. The novel tells of two brothers out to undo each other in the charged milieu of Mexico City’s business world. This twisting, turning tale, in which nothing is what it seems, navigates a society of contrasts: privilege, desperation, freedom, and impunity. Prepare to be engulfed by the vastness and chaos of one of the world’s largest cities.

In Los Perros, idealist Jorge, wrongly imprisoned by his brother’s illegal activities, struggles to find justice in the harrowing conditions of Mexico’s northern penitentiary, living among twelve thousand inmates who can barely breathe. Fueled by raw desires, Miguel becomes entangled in a hall of mirrors of deceit, struggling to control a transportation business running amok. His wife, governed by social aspirations conflicting with the lustful imperatives of her age, encounters much more—as a wife, mother, and lover. Lorea Canales’ hyperrealist tone brings us to world so real it cannot be true.
