The Gringo Champion, the award-winning debut novel by young Mexican author Aura Xilonen, is a thrillingly inventive story about crossing borders, which the Los Angeles Review of Books called “one of the must-read books of 2017.” Xilonen won Mexico’s Mauricio Achar Prize for Fiction at age 19 with this timely tale of an undocumented teenaged immigrant struggling to build a new life in an unnamed American border city. Here she speaks about migration in the Trump era, her uniquely 21st-century use of language and the role literature might play in our newly fractured world.
