Described by Jorge Luis Borges as one of the greatest texts written in any language, Juan Rulfo’s Pedro Páramo is perhaps the most influential and celebrated novel to have come out of Mexico. Mixing dream with reality, the novel centres on Pedro Páramo, patriarch of Comala, and the actual father of the book’s narrator Juan Preciado. Despite bleak and harrowing scenes throughout, this is a novel that celebrates at its heart the importance of hope, and decries the pernicious and destructive power of despair.
