Lives on the Line: The Testimony of Contemporary Latin American Authors Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These thoughtfully assembled writings by many of Latin America's finest authors bear first-person witness to the personal, social, and political situation of the writer and of literature in Latin America. At different times ironic, impassioned, humorous, reflective, autobiographical, polemical, and always vivid and engaging, this collection of writings is indispensable to a full appreciation of the achievement of twentieth-century Latin American literature.
