Snippet: A small, independent Spanish publisher in NYC

The name: Chatos Inhumanos, maybe to be translated as “inhuman kids” or “dwarfs” – “chato” as a noun in a friendly context means “little one”…

Founded by two Spaniards, two Peruvians and a Colombian who live in New York City and work in publishing and journalism.

“[A]ccording to one of the founders, Ulises González, who is also the soul of the literary magazine Los Bárbaros [“the barbarians”; blog; published since 2014 in NYC, now also available in Argentina and Spain], [it is called Chatos Inhumanos because] ‘were are more all the time, we walk around, shorter than the average, speaking our foreign language.’ The label wants to publish Spanish-speaking authors in English and Spanish.”

The first published book is Burp, by the writer and translator Mercedes Cebrián, a kind of cookbook with the author’s gastronomical obsessions.
