A Silent Fury, by Yuri Herrera

Staff Pick

Who knew that a South Mexico mine fire a century ago could still feel so distressing--and so painfully relevant--to us here today? Yuri Herrera, one of the foremost chroniclers of Mexico's corruption, focuses in this short but powerful narrative on a long-overlooked episode in his country's tragic history, recounting a mine fire that, due to the company's and the government’s neglect, killed dozens of miners. HIs brilliant acount highlights what is sadly still a contemporary problem not only in Mexico but all over the world where exploitation is allowed to proceed unchecked.
