While Venezuela may be known around the world for its oil or its politics, Venezuelan writing remains almost entirely unknown, with only a handful of books having been published in English in recent years. Crude Words is our response to this gap, a celebration of Venezuelan literary talent. Crude Words brings together 30 pieces of writing by Venezuelans, including short stories, extracts from novels, and essays, translated into English for the first time. The book also includes an introduction from the editors and a foreword from Alberto Barrera Tyszka.
