Elliott Bay Book Company says
Presently teaching World and Latin American Literature and Creative Writing at New York University, Lina Meruane is one of Chile’s most prominent literary voices as a novelist, essayist, and cultural journals, widely published in Latin America and elsewhere. Now, with her taut, moving novel, Seeing Red (Deep Vellum, published in 2012 as Sangre en el ojo, translated here by Megan McDowell), readers in English can at last start to catch up. Onstage with her this evening will be Seattle journalist and cultural instigator Florangela Davila. This should be wonderful.

“[Seeing Red] describes, through sight as a metaphor, a world of uncertain horizons opposed to each other … Rather than as a victim, she portrays her narrator with a final effect that reminds the reader of the black humor literature of the last century.” - Stefano Gelleranim Il Manifesto (Italy).

“An authentic novel written not from the edges, but from inside the sick body, with a powerful, intense narrator.” - Diaro La Voz

“Lina Meruane’s prose has great literary force: it emerges from the hammer blows of conscience, but also from the ungraspable, and from pain.” - Roberto Bolaño
