Synopsis:

One of the most remarkable books of contemporary Mexican literature, The Obstacles is the story of young writers coming of age in a world dominated entirely by their own fictions. It tells, in alternating chapters, the stories of two teenagers, Ricardo and Elias, who are characters in each others' novels.Blurring our notions of reality and fiction, Eloy Urroz takes the reader into a world where characters invent characters and challenge their creators. And the book's conclusion--in which a surprising connection between Ricardo and Elias is revealed--shows that not even fiction can be controlled in a world of such incredible unpredictability.

About the Author:

Eloy Urroz (1967, New York City, New York) is a Mexican writer. He is currently a professor at The Citadel and College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina. He graduated from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in 1996. Along with Pedro Ángel Palou, Ignacio Padilla, Ricardo Chávez Castañeda, and Jorge Volpi wrote "The Crack Manifesto" urging Latin American writers to break with their countries' literary traditions.
