Of Spirits and Monsters

From the peripheries of death, in a Taiwanese village, occupied Korea, and a decaying Mexican estate, come stories of lives marginalized by sexual orientation and class, and devastated by war and grief. In Kevin Chen’s Ghost Town (translated by Darryl Sterk) and Yu Miri’s The End of August (translated by Morgan Giles), the dead tell and reveal many tales, whereas in Gerardo Sámano Córdova’s Monstrilio, the dead comes back to life, to horrifying effect. Moderated by Jeremy Tiang, novelist, translator, and playwright.
