Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A medida que los descendientes de inmigrantes mexicanos se han ido estableciendo por todo Estados Unidos, ha surgido una gran literatura, pero sus similaridades con la literatura de México han pasado inadvertidas. En Voces sin fronteras, la primera antología que combina la literatura de ambos lados de la frontera méxico-americana, Cristina García nos presenta un diálogo intercultural de una rica diversidad.

Voces históricas de maestros mexicanos como Carlos Fuentes, Elena Poniatowska y Juan Rulfo se entrelazan contínuamente con voces magistrales de chicanos como Sandra Cisneros, Rudolfo Anaya y Gloria Anzal“a para formar una vibrante tela bilingüe y bicultural. El resultado es esta memorable colección de obras de ficción, ensayos y poesía que brinda una perspectiva emocionantemente nueva de nuestro continente —y de la mejor literatura contemporánea.

Synopsis:

A definitive compilation of Mexican-American literature from both sides of the border introduces a landmark array of stories, essays, poetry, and criticism by Alfonso Reyes, Rudolfo Anaya, Xavier Villaurutia, Carlos Fuentes, Octavio Paz, Sandra Cisneros, Ana Castillo, and Ruben Martinez, among others.
