One of the ten best fiction books of 2018 by the New York Times en Espanol, Cockfight explores the power of the home to both create and destroy those within it.

The stories shed light on the grotesque realities of family, coming of age, religion, and class struggle.

A family's maids witness a horrible cycle of abuse, a girl is auctioned off by a gang of criminals, and two sisters find themselves at the mercy of their spiteful brother.

With violence masquerading as love, characters spend their lives trapped reenacting their past traumas.
