16 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and Portuguese and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El idiota está de vuelta, sus ideas nacionalistas y populistas resurgen en América Latina y obtienen la bendición de no pocos europeos y norteamericanos, denuncian los autores Mendoza, Montaner y Vargas Llosa. Disfrazando su viejo discurso, los caudillos globalifóbicos arrastran al continente de habla hispana hacia el fracaso. Este libro es más que una advertencia: desmenuza los regímenes de Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez, Evo Morales, Néstor Kirchner y Rafael Correa; denuncia los peligros que representan Andrés Manuel López Obrador y Ollanta Humala; analiza la izquierda "vegetariana" del Brasil, Uruguay y Perú, y polemiza con los soportes intelectuales de la izquierda "carnívora" de España "encarnada por el 'talante' de Zapatero y esa política denominada 'el buenismo'", Francia y Estados Unidos. En contrapunto, los autores exponen las experiencias de países en desarrollo que han optado por estrategias liberales con éxito: Chile, Estonia, China, India e Irlanda.--Desde la descripción de la editorial
Cinco días en la isla by Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in Spanish and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mendoza's novel deals with the deterioration in Colombia as a result of the corrupting power and wealth of the drug mafia. Set in Barranquilla, the protagonist returns from Paris in search of friends and relatives. The novel compares the sophistication of established families to the tastelessness of the ascending rich. An acerbic view of the mafia's role in Colombia in recent years"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

"Martín, un periodista colombiano, con alma de poeta, lleva muchos años fuera de su país. Durante su exilio voluntario ha conocido muchas ciudades, pero tiene claro que no volverá a Colombia. Sin embargo, un trágico suceso lo obligará a regresar: su hermano, capitán del ejército, al parecer se ha suicidado, pero las circunstancias que rodean su muerte no están claras. Un relato de ilusiones perdidas, intrigas y esperanzas, que invita a descubrir el sorpresivo desenlace. Colombia y Europa, Roma, el París de los años setenta, Bogotá y las selvas colombianas se entrecruzan formando un paisaje subjetivo y original."-- Back cover

Une odeur de goyave by Gabriel García Márquez( Book )

6 editions published in 1982 in French and Undetermined and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ces entretiens détendus, accordés par l'auteur de ##Cent ans de solitude## à son ami Plinio Mendoza, auteur de la ##Fuite des Andes##, constituent de véritables dialogues au cours desquels sont abordés naturellement l'enfance de Garcia Marquez, ses lectures, ses goûts, son travail de créateur, ses choix politiques (il est socialiste et "pro-castriste"), ses activités humanitaires, etc. Jean Royer trouve que ce livre "sent un peu trop la justification", et qu'il agrandit de façon plutôt anecdotique la collection créée par Claude Bonnefoy (et non par Claude Roy comme il l'écrit par inattention). Quoi qu'il en soit, et quand on sait l'aversion du prix Nobel de littérature pour l'interview, ce livre constitue une sorte de tour de force. "Au milieu des perplexités de la renommée" Marquez a conservé un certain nombre de certitudes et une agréable simplicité. A noter que ces entretiens ne sont pas datés: la page 151, cependant, indique clairement que Garcia Marquez n'avait pas encore reçu le prix Nobel. Chronologie, p. 173-182
