If you are an advanced Spanish student, don’t miss this opportunity to read and analyze the fascinating novel “Señales que precederán al fin del mundo”. Written by one of the most promising contemporary Mexican writers, Yuri Herrera, this short novel explores one young woman’s journey across the border, and implications of crossing, not just territory but cultures, identities, and even between the world of the living and of the dead. All narrated in Herrera’s beautiful, precise prose infused with the slang used by the people on both sides of the border.
