Publisher Description

A plague has brought death to the city. Two feuding crime families with blood on their hands need our hard-boiled hero, the Redeemer, to broker peace. Both his instincts and the vacant streets warn him to stay indoors, but the Redeemer ventures out into the city’s underbelly to arrange for the exchange of the bodies they hold hostage.

Yuri Herrera’s novel is a response to the violence of contemporary Mexico. With echoes of Romeo and Juliet, Roberto Bolaño, and Raymond Chandler, The Transmigration of Bodies is a noirish tragedy and a tribute to those bodies—loved, sanctified, lusted after, and defiled—that violent crime has touched.

“In Herrera’s slim, amusing book, [he] strips Romeo & Juliet to its essence and sets it against a plague that symbolizes Mexico’s recent violent history.”

— Publishers Weekly 


  • “The Transmigration of Bodies represents a highpoint in the genre of the novel.”

    — Álvaro Enrigue, author of Sudden Death
  • “A magnificent book and its author one of the few indispensable Latin American writers of our times.”

    — Patricio Pron, author of My Fathers’ Ghost Is Climbing in the Rain
