Overview

A failing artist turned forger, an architectural masterpiece hidden behind high walls, an impish vagabond, and some very resourceful, very intimidating twins–Forgery pays homage to greats like Juan Rulfo and Luis Barragán, traversing late 20th Century Guadalajara with the exuberance and eccentricity of an 18th Century picaresque.

Reviews

Ave Barrera eases us into this microcosmos as strange and shocking as it is true, constructing powerful atmospheres imbued with very varied sensations, ranging from dreamlike hallucinations to terror, horror and beauty. –El País

We must pay serious attention to the work of Ave Barrera, not just what she has already published but also what is yet to be written. –Cristina Rivera Garza, author of NO ONE WILL SEE ME CRY

The plot flows in an intelligent and audacious way: It surprises by the simplicity and malice in which complex technical aspects are solved. –Geney Beltrán Félix

A fun and entertaining story of a great literary quality. –Milenio

Delightfully written, full of revelations ... Such a literary discovery. –Radio 3 (RTVE)
