Om Interior Circuit
The author of Say Her Name shares a deeply personal memoir of grieving the loss of his wifeand confronting the troubled Mexican city where she grew up. Five years after his wife's untimely death, Francisco Goldman decided to overcome his fear of driving in Mexico City. The widower and award-winning writer wanted to fully embrace his late wife's childhood home and the city that came to mean so much to them. In The Interior Circuit, Goldman chronicles his personal and political awakening to the nuances of this unique city as he learns to navigate the ';circuito interior,' its crisscrossing network of highway-like roads. Many regard Mexico's capitalthen known as the ';DF' or Distrito Federalas a haven from the social ills that plague the rest of the country. Goldman's account reveals a more complicated truth as he explores the effects of Mexico's raging narco war, the resurgence of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (the PRI), and new eruptions of organized crime-related violence. Part travelogue, part memoir, and part political reportage,The Interior Circuit';is so sneakily brilliant it's hard to put into words.... It is also, in the finest sense, a book that creates its own form' (Los Angeles Times).
