Book Trailer Thursday: Sudden Death

In celebration of the publication of Álvaro Enrigue’s Sudden Death, out this week, Riverhead is releasing a series of videos of staff having a go at phrases in the Purépecha language. Diego Báez calls the book “joyfully disorienting,” and says it will “reward readers who won’t mind feeling like wanderers lost in the increasingly erudite corridors of Borges’ library of Babel.” See the first two Purépecha Word of the Day videos above and below.
