Velvet Was the Night

by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

1972, Mexico City. Amidst the chaos of violent protests and political unrest, we meet two seemingly unconnected lost souls. Maite lives a quiet and solitary life as a secretary, but dreams of the passion and adventure she finds in her beloved romance comics. Elvis
escaped the streets by working as a thug for the secret police, but longs for true freedom and agency. When a beautiful art student goes missing, both Elvis and Maite are thrust into the center of a conflict greater than them both, that will lead them on a twisted path to
each other.

Silvia Moreno-Garcia is a rare literary chameleon, and this beautiful neo-noir thriller is her best work yet. – Skye
