The Golden Cockerel

January 16, 2017

Mexican master Rulfo’s innovative 1955 novel Pedro Páramo, which influenced Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude, has been credited with ushering in ‘the Latin American Boom’ in literature during the 1960s and ‘70s. The Golden Cockerel, Rulfo’s second novel, was originally written in the 1950s as a film script with Marquez and Carlos Fuentes. Rulfo sets his story in the cockfighting rings, cantinas and gambling halls of post-Revolutionary central Mexico. The novel portrays village life as a combination of hardship and celebration. This first English translation by Douglas J Weatherford is being published in collaboration with the Juan Rulfo Foundation in Mexico to honour the 100th anniversary of Rulfo’s birth and kick off a series of international events to reintroduce Rulfo to readers.
