Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rebecca Wests never-before-published Survivors in Mexico brings to readers a daring and provocative work by a major twentieth-century author. An exhilarating exploration of Mexican history, religion, art, and culture, it explores the inner lives of figures ranging from Cortés and Montezuma to Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, and Leon Trotsky.

“Witty and entertaining, substantive and reflective, insightful and well documented, in splendid and uncommon prose, Rebecca Wests travelogue . . . is a model of British sophistication and knack for seeing the other.”—Jorge G. Castañeda, New York Times Book Review

“An enthrallingly readable book . . . full of sharp impressions and stimulating insights.”—Merle Rubin, Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Luscious reading. . . . The book succeeds beautifully as a travelogue thanks to Wests intellect and experience, with Mexico serving as the vehicle for it all.”—Sam Quinones, Washington Post Book World
