Last week, I wrote here about a new picture book import, coming to shelves next month, Raúl Nieto Guridi’s The King of Nothing (New York Review, October 2018), which was originally published in Spanish in 2013 as El rey de nada and has been translated by Saul Endor. I’m following up with some art today.
