The death of Artemio Cruz by Carlos Fuentes( Book )

444 editions published between 1952 and 2017 in 14 languages and held by 6,119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An imaginative portrait of an unscrupulous individual, the story also serves as commentary on Mexican society, most notably on the abuse of power--a theme that runs throughout Fuentes' work. As the novel opens, Artemio Cruz, former revolutionary turned capitalist, lies on his deathbed. He drifts in and out of consciousness, and when he is conscious his mind wanders between past and present. The story reveals that Cruz became rich through treachery, bribery, corruption, and ruthlessness. As a young man he had been full of revolutionary ideals. Acts committed as a means of self-preservation soon developed into a way of life based on opportunism. A fully realized character, Cruz can also be seen as a symbol of Mexico's quest for wealth at the expense of moral values

His father is a good man but weak; his uncle is powerful, yet his actions are inconsistent with his professed beliefs.

There they are gradually drawn into a mysterious connection with the French Victor Heredia and his son, known as Andre.

"Carlos Fuentes writes passionately and brilliantly about Frida Kahlo in the introduction of this book, which reproduces the pages and drawings of Kahlo's personal diary. Sarah M. Lowe, who wrote the commentaries and the essay, provides a more balanced view. Work is a curious gathering of thoughts and feelings, observations and annotations, and indeed makes the reader feel that he/she is entering forbidden and intimate territory. A deep realm, at times tender and dark, the book will probably make Kahlo's many fans eager to dive in"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
