City of Asylum/Pittsburgh invites you to an evening with Horacio Castellanos Moya next Wednesday, July 27, at 7:00 pm. Castellanos Moya will read from his latest novel Tyrant Memory, translated into English by Katherine Silver and published by New Direction Press.

In her New York Times review, Sheila Glaser writes: “Castellanos Moya’s sharp urban ironies give way to the rhythms of life in a provincial Latin American capital,” and added that “Tyrant Memory remains Castellanos Moya’s most ambitious novel to date.”
