Hurricane Season, by Fernanda Melchor

Staff Pick

Told in eight single-paragraph chapters  by as many different narrators, Hurricane Season is an assault of language that leaves the reader in a state of ecstatic discombobulation, searching for an elusive truth among  the dueling narratives. On its face, this is a story about the murder of a witch and the search for her killers and their motivation, but at a deeper level Melchor has constructed a discordant and wild portrait of a small town riven by poverty, politics, and sex.
