Mischief and Mayhem is a publishing collective, not a publishing company. Our goals are to nurture and promote distinctive authorial voices, especially those that fall outside of commercially acceptable notions of literature, and to do everything we can to bring those writers to the largest possible audience.
Jaime Manrique is the author of, among other books: Scarecrows, Latin Moon in Manhattan, My Night With Federico García Lorca, Sor Juana’s Love Poems, Eminent Maricones, and, most recently, Cervantes Street, an historical novel about the writer of Don Quixote as well as the mysterious “Alonso Fernández de Avellaneda” who wrote the spurious sequel to Cervantes’ masterpiece. The book that has received praise from Junot Díaz (“Manrique is fantastically talented and this is perhaps his masterpiece” and Edith Grossman (“Manrique’s rendering of the life of Cervantes is brilliant”).
Goce Smilevski is a Macedonian novelist who has been described as “A young heir to Günter Grass and José Saramago…the newest of a rare thing—a living European novelist with a message for the future of his continent. Smilevski’s second novel, Freud’s Sister, is an investigation into the circumstances that led to Sigmund Freud leaving his sister Adolfina in Austria when he fled Nazi persecution. The winner of the European Union Book Prize, the novel has been described as a “gem of a book” by Publishers Weekly and “provocative and poignant” by Kirkus Reviews.
