The Interior Circuit Zusammenfassung

The Interior Circuit: A Mexico City Chronicle Francisco Goldman

The Interior Circuit is Goldman's story of his emergence from grief five years after his wife's death, symbolized by his attempt to overcome his fear of driving in the city. Embracing the DF (Mexico City) as his home, Goldman explores and celebrates the city which stands defiantly apart from so many of the social ills and violence wracking Mexico.

This is the chronicle of an awakening, both personal and political, 'interior' and 'exterior', to the meaning and responsibilities of home. Mexico's narcotics war rages on and, with the restoration of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (the PRI) to power in the 2012 elections, the DF's special apartness seems threatened. In the summer of 2013, when Mexican organized-crime violence and deaths erupt in the city in an unprecedented way, Goldman sets out to try to understand the menacing challenges the city now faces.

By turns exuberant, poetic, reportorial, philosophic, and urgent, The Interior Circuit fuses a personal journey to an account of one of the world's most remarkable and often misunderstood cities.

The Interior Circuit Bewertungen

So sneakily brilliant it's hard to put into words. * Los Angeles Times *
An indispensable contribution to the growing body of artistic representations of Mexico's most recent years of darkness. * Los Angeles Review of Books *
Sentence by sentence, Goldman brings to life a city that is bewitching, terrifying, beautiful... A reporter by trade, a brawler by Bostonian birth, he is a fabulous and wonderfully erratic pilot for this trip across and through the DF, or District Federale, as Mexico City is known. * Boston Globe *
Altogether moving and eye-opening, The Interior Circuit is as much a love letter to Mexico City as it is to his late wife. * San Francisco Chronicle *
Engaging and often moving...Such generosity, charm and conviction that the journey is a rewarding one. * Guardian *
Beautiful writing and unblinking honesty... Goldman is thought-provoking on the corrupt path he sees Mexico stuck on, and the uncertain course that lies ahead. * Financial Times *
It's a narrative that is both lyrical and concussively immediate. * Weekend Herald *
