Eduardo Halfon

Eduardo Halfon was born in Guatemala City in 1971 . He studied Industrial Engineering at North Carolina State University,. Named one of the best Latin American writers by the Hay Festival of Bogotá, he is also the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Spain's prestigious José María de Pereda Prize for the Short Novel. The Polish Boxer, his first book to appear in English, was a New York Times Editor's Choice selection and finalist for the International Latino Book Award. Halfon currently lives in Nebraska and travels frequently to his native Guatemala. 

Guatemala may be tranquil, but Eduardo Halfon is a narrative volcano.
— Neue Zürcher Zeitung
Hell of a writer, that Halfon, his words are dry like pebbles.
— Le Figaro
Halfon and his silent and precise prose, crumbling foreign universes, revealing the unknown.
— El País
[Halfon’s work is] tight and lean . . . falling somewhere between the novels of Roberto Bolaño, WG Sebald, and Junot Díaz.
— Telegraph
Eduardo Halfon’s prose is delicate, precise, and as ineffable as a precocious art — a lighthouse that illuminated everything.
— Francisco Goldman, author of Say Her Name
