Alejandro Cartagena’s Favorite Book from 2019

Tonatiuh by Juan Brenner.   Published by Editorial RM.

Gold, death and the uncertainty of our Latin American identities are some of the issues brought up in Juan Brenner’s new book. Uncomfortable and in your face, the images don’t shy away from pointing out how even after 500 years of the European invasion and massacre carried throughout Mexico and Guatemala, we still haven’t found peace.

Alejandro is a editor and a self-publisher. His books examine social, urban and environmental issues in the Americas. Alejandro lives and works in Monterrey, Mexico.
