María José Ferrada second novel will be published in the USA by Tin House and by Moinhos in Brazil by mid 2022. And later in the year by Jensen og Dalgaard in Denmark.
El hombre del cartel was published in Spain by Alianza in late 2021:
“El hombre del cartel is close to Italo Calvino’s idea of lightness in literature. Trust me, reader, enter this book.” Ernesto Ayala-Dip, Babelia, El País
“Icing on the cake, a brilliant Spanish shines throughout the text, dispensing sensory marvels with an unusual dexterity. María José Ferrada has an exceptional talent and enough courage to face the most ambitious challenges. El hombre del cartel is a major work.” El Imparcial
