Translated into twenty languages and published in more than fourteen Spanish editions, The Lost Steps, originally published in 1953, is Alejo Carpentier's most heralded novel.

El recurso del método : novela by Alejo Carpentier( Book )

184 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The use of the method, a complex work, written in sumptuous language, mounted on a monologue, at the time had a very enthusiastic reception by the public and critics, as evidenced by its many editions, which already exceed thirty excluding foreign languages. Most critics acknowledged the significant achievement, a historical and political novel whose virtues were the authenticity of the narrative world parody, now of the proposal and the level of formal experimentation."

From the Publisher: A publishing event: the foundational work on Cuban music by a major figure of the twentieth century, now in English for the first time. In the wake of the Buena Vista Social Club, the world has rediscovered the rich musical tradition of Cuba. A unique combination of popular and elite influences, the music of this island nation has fascinated since the golden age of the son and that New World aural collision of Africa and Europe that made Cuban music the rage in Paris, New York, and Mexico beginning in the 1920s. Originally published in 1946 and never before available in an English translation, Music in Cuba is not only the best and most extensive study of Cuban musical history, it is a work of literature in its own right. Drawing on such primary documents as obscure church circulars, dog-eared musical scores pulled from attics, and the records of the Spanish colonial authorities, Music in Cuba sweeps panoramically from the sixteenth into the twentieth century. Carpentier covers European-style elite Cuban music as well as the popular worlds of rural Spanish folk and urban Afro-Cuban music. In a substantial introduction based on extensive original research, Timothy Brennan explores Carpentier's career prior to the writing of his novels. Looking especially at Carpentier's work as a music reviewer, radio producer, and musical theorist, Brennan suggests new ways of thinking about the role of Latin American artists in Europe between the wars, and the central place of radio and music-club cultures in the European avant-gardes
