YURI HERRERA does not simply write about the border between Mexico and the United States and those who cross it, he explores the crossings and translations people make in their minds and language as they move from one country to another - especially when there’s no going back.

Born in Actopan, Mexico, in 1970, Herrera studied Politics in Mexico, Creative Writing in El Paso and took his PhD in literature at Berkeley.
