Most widely held works by Enrique Jaramillo Levi
Contemporary short stories from Central America( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the stories are quite sophisticated, dealing with middle-class concerns more often associated with the more developed countries of the world, and often utilize elements of the absurd or techniques of magical realism. In "The Circumstantial or the Ephemeral," Guatemalan writer Augusto Monterroso depicts the strain on a couple's relationship when the husband, a distinctly mediocre writer, wins a literary contest. "Floral Caper" by Costa Rican Carmen Naranjo depicts a man who floods his house with flowers to bolster his failed sense of self-esteem, and, in "Love Is Spelled with a G," Panamanian Rosa Maria Britton writes of a young mulatto city girl who attempts to escape the near-hopelessness of her racial and social situation by snagging an anglo U.S. military man for a husband
When new flowers bloomed : short stories by women writers from Costa Rica and Panama( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women writers from the Central American nations of Costa Rica and Panama have distinguished themselves in the fields of short fiction and poetry during recent years. Their triumph mirrors their countries' struggles to overcome poverty and political violence. The quality and sheer number of their stories testify to their ongoing pursuit of artistic perfection." "The women whose stories have been especially translated into English for this special issue have found the key to effective communication by searching their hearts and minds, and by exploring the intricately textured web of life that surrounds them." "Costa Rica and Panama are linked by culture, geographical location and political history. A recent earthquake that struck sections of both countries at once underlined their similar vulnerability to natural disaster. A deep and continuous theme running through these writings is a note of hope for a calmer future."--Jacket
