"The Beast: Riding the Rails and Dodging Narcos on the Migrant Trail" by Óscar Martínez, English translation 2013

 

Previously published in Spain in 2010 and in Mexico in 2012, Martínez’s debut is the hard-won result of immersive journalism. After several large-scale kidnappings of migrants, the author spent two years following the routes used by undocumented travelers though Mexico.

Martínez develops attentive portraits of the migrants, officials, aid workers and criminals he encounters; his first-person account is executed with passion and grit, illuminating a heartbreaking yet easily ignored reality.

A harrowing look at the real costs of globalization, immigration and drug-prohibition politics, short on solutions and absent hope. -- Kirkus Review
