The Center for Translation Studies in association with The Center for US-Latin American Initiatives and Deep Vellum Publishing present: A Reading and Conversation with Eduardo Rabasa. The author will be at UTD to talk about his new novel, A Zero Sum Game. Eduardo Rabasa studied political science at Mexico’s National University (UNAM), where he graduated with a thesis on the concept of power in the work of George Orwell. In 2002 he co-founded Sexto Piso, recognized as one of Mexico’s leading independent publishers, where he currently serves as editorial director. In 2015, he was selected among the 20 best Mexican authors under the age of 40 as part of the Hay Festival’s México20 project. Rabasa is also a translator—he has translated books by Morris Berman, George Orwell, and Somerset Maugham. A Zero-Sum Game is his debut novel, published Deep Vellum in 2016 in its English translation by Christina MacSweeney. A Zero Sum Game is a biting satire of contemporary consumer society and the cult of the individual, liberally sprinkled with humor and chilling realism.
