Winner of the 2009 Gival Press Novel Award.
"The Cannibal of Guadalajara" is a refreshing dark comedy, with a range of characters who commingle between Mexico and Manhattan among their nightmares and dreams. Winner gives the reader surprises of sex and romance and paints a sympathetic and precise description of their world. Wildly imaginative, it paints a lush yet pointedly satirical portrait of New Yorkers in love and lust, baby boomers in mid-life misadventures, Gen-Xers in the grip of perennial childhood, and the aspirations that have led them all astray.
