Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mexico has long been the top travel destination for Americans. But until now, there has not been such a panoramic vision of Mexico offered by some of Mexico's finest contemporary writers of fiction and literary prose. Here are writings-many translated for the first time-that bring you to the people of the beaches, the deserts, jungles, snow-capped mountains, and megacities.

The voices are rich and diverse, the stories enthralling and strange. These writings shatter stereotypes as they provide a rollicking journey from the Pacific to the Gulf, from Yucatan to border slums, from humble ranchos to a fabulous mountaintop castle.

Contributors include rising stars as well as many of Mexico's best-known literary writers, including: Fernando del Paso, Elena Poniatowska, Carlos Fuentes, Angeles Mastretta, Alberto Ruy-Sanchez, Ilan Stavans, and Juan Villoro.
