The Vintage book of Latin American stories by Carlos Fuentes( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 742 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

Transatlantic translations : dialogues in Latin American literature by Julio Ortega( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christened the New World, Latin America represented a new beginning for Spanish colonists. In fact, the discovery of Latin America was only part of a continuing, worldwide search for new resources: fertile land, precious metals, and slave labor. Nevertheless, this idealized image of Latin America continues to dominate interpretations of 'natives, ' who are transformed into marginalized, romanticized figures, either unusually wise or wildly heroic. Transatlantic Translations refigures Latin American narratives outside of this standard postcolonial framework of victimization and resistance. Julio Ortega traces the ways in which Latin America has been represented through the works of many 'native speakers, ' including Juan Rulfo, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Juan Maria Gutierrez. Language, Ortega reveals, was not solely a way for colonizers to indoctrinate and civilize; instead, it gave Latin Americans the means to tell their own history. Spanning literatures from the early modern period to the present day, the essays in Transatlantic Translations demonstrate the rich history of shared language between old and new worlds
The lizard's tale : a novel by José Donoso( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in Spanish and English and held by 355 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 255 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

A world for Julius : a novel by Alfredo Bryce Echenique( Book )

30 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in Spanish and Italian and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Julius was born in a mansion on Salaverry Avenue, directly across from the old San Felipe Hippodrome." Life-size Disney characters and cowboy movie heroes romp across the walls of his nursery. Out in the carriage house, his great-grandfather's ornate, moldering carriage takes him on imaginary adventures. But Julius' father is dead, and his beautiful young mother passes through her children's lives like an ephemeral shooting star. Despite the soft shelter of family and money, hard realities overshadow Julius' expanding world, just as the rugged Andes loom over his home in Lima."--BOOK JACKET. "This lyrical, richly textured novel, first published in 1970 as Un mundo para Julius, opens new territory in Latin American literature with its focus on the social elite of Peru. A member of that elite, Bryce Echenique incisively charts the decline of an influential, centuries-old aristocratic family who become nouveaux riches with the invasion of foreign capital in the 1950s. A World for Julius, his first novel, marks the first appearance in English of this important Peruvian writer, whose Latin American postmodern fiction has won critical acclaim throughout the Spanish-speaking world."--BOOK JACKET
