Editorial Reviews

Andrea Scrima
The Brooklyn Rail: "The Cannibal of Guadalajara...is a powerful tale of unlikely menage-a-trois...[it] is above all a road trip through the nightmares and wet dreams of middle-aged disaffection, regret, and redemption."--Andrea Scrima
Andi Diehn
"Families come in all shapes and sizes; sometimes they sneak up on us fully formed. This is what happens to Margaret Heller after her divorce.... Winner, who won the Gival Press Novel Award, writes with great cunning and precision... Winner transforms embarrassing moments into the briefest of epiphanies. Margaret, Dante and Alfred are as human as they possibly can be."
- Andi Diehn, Debut Fiction ForeSight Feature in the May/June 2010 issue of ForeWord Reviews

Meet the Author

David Winner teaches at a community college, lives in Brooklyn and writes fiction. "The Cannibal of Guadalajara" came not only from his love of Latin America but his interest in unconventional family arrangements, for which he likes to use fiction (rather than his own relatively ordinary marriage) to explore.

Winner has received two Pushcart nominations and first prize in The Ledge's 2003 Fiction Contest. His work has appeared in The Village Voice, Fiction, Confrontation, Cortland Review, Staple, Dream Catcher, Phantasmagori, KGB, and several other literary magazines in the USA and the UK. A film based on a short story of his was shown at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007, and he's the fiction editor of The American, a magazine based in Rome, Italy.
