Check out of the cover of NOIRYORICAN (Down and Out Books, November 2020), designed by Zach McCain.

In 13 fast-moving stories, the author of Hipster Death Rattle explores the tragic world of noir fiction with a wide range of Latinx characters. These stories define noir as tales of people who fall not from great heights but from the stoop and the sidewalk.

“With considerable style, poise, and humor, Richie Narvaez’s Noiryorican unpacks a world of grifters, street punks and hangers-on just trying to get by in the big city when the odds are stacked against them. At his street poet best, Narvaez gives Jonathan Lethem and Junot Diaz a run for their money. I loved this collection.”—Adrian McKinty, bestselling author of The Chain

“In this eclectic collection of noir stories, Narvaez takes the reader across the boroughs of New York City, Puerto Rico, LA, and Texas. Open this book and take this ride through the mazes of Narvaez’s imagination.”—Ivelisse Rodriguez, author of Love War Stories
