Based on (mostly) true events, The Bullet Swallower is a magical realism western that follows a bandit and a movie star as their stories trace a similar arc, even though they are separated by sixty years.

In the tradition of Mexican magical realists like Juan Rulfo and Carlos Fuentes, Elizabeth Gonzalez James weaves a complex and ambitious story that questions the nature of good and evil, and how much a man’s soul is really worth.
