The scene is Guanajuato, a provincial capital in Central Mexico, once one of the world's richest mining centers.

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

Trasluce la aspereza de la diversidad social y cultural, la piramide del poder, las aguas sucias de la historia."--Product description from
The eagle's throne : a novel by Carlos Fuentes( Book )

97 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mexico in the year 2020. A country without power, literally - no phone, no fax, no email, no sattelite communicaton - because the president, unaccountably putting principle before realpolitik, has offended his northern neighbour, by keeping the price of Mexican oil high and demanding the removal of US troops from Columbia. And in these days, thanks to the greed and incompetence of his predecessors, the US just happens to supply his country's electricity through a Latin America friendly corporation in Miami and has turned off the supply. In a country where no one ever puts anything in writing, letters become the only way to communicate. Overnight, the true motives, feelings and private lives of the politicians lie suddenly and brutally exposed. Especially now that everyone knows the only important political question of the day is: Who will be the next president, the next to ascend the eagle's throne?

Translated by Margaret Sayers Peden During a long, lingering lunch at the Automobile Club de France, the elderly Comte de Branly tells a story to a friend, unnamed until the closing pages, who is in fact the first-person narrator of the novel. Branly's story is of a family named Heredia: Hugo, a noted Mexican archaeologist, and his young son, Victor, whom Branly met in Cuernavaca and who became his house guest in Paris. There they are gradually drawn into a mysterious connection with the French Victor Heredia and his son, known as Andre. There is a hard-edged emphasis on the theme of relations between the Old World and the New, as Branly's twilit, Proustian existence is invaded and overcome by the hot, chaotic, and baroque proliferation of the Caribbean jungle

The diary of Frida Kahlo : an intimate self-portrait by Frida Kahlo( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 1,824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
