Summary

“Remarkable…Sentence by sentence, Goldman brings to life a city that is bewitching, terrifying, beautiful….Goldman brings something new to the [chronicle] form.”—John Freeman, Boston Globe

The Interior Circuit is Sue Kaufman prize-winner Francisco Goldman’s brilliant chronicle of his emergence from grief five years after his beloved wife’s death, symbolized by his attempt to overcome his fear of driving in Mexico City (the DF). When organized crime erupts in the city in an unprecedented way during the summer of 2013, Goldman sets out to try to understand the menacing challenges the DF now faces. By turns exuberant, poetic, reportorial, philosophical, and urgent, The Interior Circuit fuses a personal journey to a searing account of one of the world’s most remarkable and often misunderstood great cities.

“An indispensable contribution to the growing body of artistic representations of Mexico’s most recent years of darkness...there is an urgent, raw beauty in [Goldman’s] prose.”—Rubén Martínez, Los Angeles Review of Books
