The Vintage book of Latin American stories( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Vintage Book of Latin American Stories, Julio Ortega and Carlos Fuentes present the most compelling short fiction from Mexico to Chile. Surreal, poetic, naturalistic, urbane, peasant-born: All styles intersect and play, often within a single piece. There is "The Handsomest Drown Man in the World," the García Márquez fable of a village overcome by the power of human beauty; "The Aleph," Borges' classic tale of a man who discovers, in a colleague's cellar, the Universe. Here is the haunting shades of Juan Rulfo, the astonishing anxiety puzzles of Julio Cortázar, the disquieted domesticity of Clarice Lispector. Provocative, powerful, immensely engaging, The Vintage Book of Latin American Stories showcases the ingenuity, diversity, and continuing excellence of a vast and vivid literary tradition

The lizard's tale : a novel by José Donoso( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the center of The Lizard's Tale is Antonio Muñoz-Roa, a prominent painter whose circumstances bear a striking resemblance to Donoso's own when he wrote the novel. Hiding in his Barcelona apartment, obsessed with the ruins of his past, Muñoz-Roa relates the story of his flight to the small town of Dors with Luisa, his cousin, lover, and benefactor, after his scandalous defection from the 'Informalist' movement (an ironic reference to a contemporary Catalan art movement and possibly also a veiled allusion to the boom)."--Page [2] of jacket

The fox from up above and the fox from down below by José María Arguedas( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The last novel by Peruvian writer Jose Maria Arguedas, set in the booming port city of Chimbote, is an expression of the human costs of rapid modernization. Tragically, the malaise of the society is reflected in the literal self-destruction of the author, a process chronicled in four diaries woven into the novel itself. Arguedas lost his struggle with suicide as he neared the end of the novel and shot himself to death, closing his own life but deliberately leaving his novel open. Fittingly, the forces of destruction in this work are wondrously transformed by language and emotion, by faith and redemption. The Fox From Up Above and the Fox From Down Below contains critical essays providing background and analyses of the text for classroom use."--Jacket

Julius es un niño que observa con inocencia un orden social donde señores y sirvientes, padres e hijos, alumnos y profesores, se relacionan sin llegar jamás a conocerse. Así, en el mundo de Julius, preso de incomunicación, coexisten muchos mundos. Y sus experiencias, pero sobre todo sus reflexiones, habrán de encaminarlo hacia uno de ellos, o quizás hacia uno distinto, más suyo, que los integre todos. Aunque ambientada en la Lima de mediados del siglo XX, esta novela sigue hablándonos del Perú, del mundo de hoy
Peruvian traditions by Ricardo Palma( Book )

30 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in Spanish and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peruvian author Ricardo Palma (1838-1919) was one of the most popular and imitated writers in Latin America during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. As head of the National Library in Lima, Palma had access to a rich source of historical books and manuscripts. His historical miscellanies, which he called "traditions," are witty anecdotes about conquerors, viceroys, clergymen, and other notorious characters of Peru's colonial and republican past."--Jacket
