The Hungry Inferno Court is now in session. All rise for the honorable ZombieDante.

The court recognizes Horacio Castellanos Moya, having asserted his position as the finest living writer last year with the English translation of his masterful Senselessness. This month brings two more of his books, She-Devil in the Mirror and Dance With Snakes, into English—testimonies to be reviewed by the court in order to solidify the above stated position of Mr. H.C.M. or to reassess his standing in the pantheon of greats.

In the mean time, please review the following essay from the Quarterly Conversation by Mr. Scott Esposito that shall provide an overview of Latin American literature and the so-called political novel, and the novels of Castellanos Moya, detailing their deceptive and artful nature.

Court dismissed.
