              Las cr nicas de Fernanda Melchor dan cuenta de la degradaci n humana en uno de sus aspectos m s s rdidos. Lo que su libro hace es manifestar la ignominia en toda esta rudeza. Aqu no es Miami es un libro de cr nicas devastador, luminoso y emotivo. Con facilidad nos lleva de la man...o por toda una gama de sentimientos que van de la compasi n al asombro, de la dulzura a la impiedad. Parece que est escrito por un sobreviviente, o, digamos, por un exconvicto. El ojo de Fernanda Melchor es implacable. Mira por nosotros. Nos ahorra el trabajo de desplazarnos a Veracruz y de atisbar en las oquedades m s profundas de aquellos hombres forjados en la lucha por la sobrevivencia. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Fernanda Melchor's chronicles recount human degradation at its most shameful and disgusting aspects. This Is Not Miami is a devastating, eye-opening, and emotional compilation of stories that bring forth and shed light on great brutality and atrocities. She smoothly guides us through feelings that range from compassion to admiration, and harmony to the unkind. It reads as if it were written by a survivor, or an ex-convict; her judgement and discernment is unyielding. She does the ground work for us, of going to Veracruz and taking a glimpse into the lives of those men and their struggle for survival.

              Con un ritmo y un lenguaje magistrales, Fernanda Melchor, autora de Falsa liebre explora en esta obra las sinrazones que subyacen a los actos mas desesperados de barbarie pasional. Una novela cruda y desgarradora en la que el lector quedara envuelto, atrapado por las palabras y l...a atmosfera de terrible, aunque gozosa, fatalidad. Un grupo de ninos encuentra un cadaver flotando en las aguas turbias de un canal de riego cercano a la rancheria de La Matosa. El cuerpo resulta ser de la Bruja, una mujer que heredo dicho oficio de su madre fallecida, y a quienes los pobladores de esa zona rural respetaban y temian. Tras el macabro hallazgo, las sospechas y habladurias recaeran sobre un grupo de muchachos del pueblo, a quienes dias antes una vecina vio mientras huian de casa de la hechicera, cargando lo que parecia ser un cuerpo inerte. A partir de ahi, los personajes involucrados en el crimen nos contaran su historia mientras los lectores nos sumergimos en la vida de este lugar acosado por la miseria y el abandono, y donde convergen la violencia del erotismo mas oscuro y las sordidas relaciones de poder. Otros autores han opinado: Un viaje nocturno a las profundidades del alma humana con el estilo mas radical de su generacion. Martin Solares Fernanda Melchor no solo escribe con la potencia rabiosa que le reclaman los temas que ha decidido investigar, sino que en cada pagina muestra un oido y una agudeza pocas veces vista en nuestra literatura.
