Jorge Majfud Publishes His Latest Novel

Jorge Majfud

May 17, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Latino-American writer Jorge Majfud has returned with his latest novel, entitled, El mismo fuego (The Same Fiore), just a few months after publishing Tequila, a ‘road story’ in Majfud’s style, which is a fascinating exploration of human nature.

With " El mismo fuego", Majfud reconfirms the reasons why he is one of the last cult writers; the novel explores its own childhood to give birth to a universal history.

The novel is the psychological and spiritual confession of a child who suffers from a syndrome in which he cannot forget anything and, at the same time, can only understand the present events from the perspective of the past. Although a fascinating thriller about a frustrated coup d'Ètat in a Latin American country, it is above all a deep exploration of the first deep feelings of childhood, such as love, the desire for a woman, and the pain of systematic lies and injustices.

Jorge Majfud is one of the few cult writers left alive. To those of us who follow him, not only due to our reading lists for college but by our own decisions, I tell them that this new novel will not disappoint them - quite the opposite.

This novel confirms that Majfud is still a living explosion of creativity, always defining the current, dominant "literature for sale".


“One morning the children were playing in an old cart when a gunshot rang out. They were some distance away, but the sound traveled across the fields of Tacuarembó and they knew, who knows how or why, that the report came from the bed of their most beloved aunt, Marta.

Ever since that morning, Nolo, the youngest in the family, has wondered out loud: “Why be born, if we have to die?”

Jorge, his older brother, tries to help him.

He searches for an answer.

The years flow on, the way trees slides past the windows of a train, and Jorge is still searching for the answer.”

Eduardo Galeano, from the book Hunter of Stories.

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Jun 26, 2019

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...

New cyclone begins to make landfall in northern Mozambique

Jun 26, 2019

JOHANNESBURG — A powerful tropical cyclone began to make landfall on Thursday in Mozambique, just six weeks after Cyclone Idai devastated the central part of the country and left hundreds dead.
