This news comes on the eve of the announcement of the winner of the 2014 Premio Alfaguara, which was awarded tonight. The winner was just announced about an hour ago and for the third time a Colombian, Jorge Franco, has won the award. Here is a screencap of the synopsis pic tweeted out after the announcement:
Franco’s book should be available in stores in 2-3 months, if recent publication histories of previous winners is any indication. I plan on reviewing that, along with other Premio Alfaguara winners, during the course of this year.
