The King is Always Above the People

A novel by

An unforgettable collection of stories from Daniel Alarcon, one of the New Yorker's 20 best writers under 40, and one of the best storytellers of our time.

'The King is Always Above the People' unites the stories of multiple characters whose lives, though lacking in heroic deeds, each reveal an underlying defiance of power in its different guises. A son is forced by his father to work as a guide to a blind man; a vibrator decides the fate of a couple's love; a lesbian woman remembers her affair with the president.

These unforgettable stories are further proof of Daniel Alarcon's standing as one of the best storytellers of our time, a writer who is able to fuse together the best aspects of both the Latin American and the American literary traditions.
