Ultimately, they could not break free from the era’s rigid binaries, and found little room to promote their social democratic ideals without compromising them."Article| Patrick Iber| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Mexico City Reader
☯ Full Synopsis : "Mexico City is one of Latin America’s cultural capitals, and one of the most vibrant urban spaces in the world. The Mexico City Reader is an anthology of "Cronicas"—short, hybrid texts that are part literary essay, part urban reportage—about life in the capital. This is not the "City of Palaces" of yesteryear, but the vibrant, chaotic, anarchic urban space of the1980s and 1990s—the city of garbage mafias, necrophiliac artists, and kitschy millionaires. Like the visitor wandering through the city streets, the reader will be constantly surprised by the visions encountered in this mosaic of writings—a textual space brimming with life and crowded with flâneurs, flirtatious students, Indian dancers, food vendors, fortune tellers, political activists, and peasant protesters. The essays included in this anthology were written by a panoply of writers, from well-known authors like Carlos Monsiváis and Jorge Ibagüengoitia to younger figures like Fabrizio Mejía Madrid and Juieta García González, all of whom are experienced practitioners of the city. The texts collected in this anthology are among the most striking examples of this concomitant "theory and practice" of Mexico City, that most delirious of megalopolises. “[An] exciting literary journey . . .”—Carolyn Malloy, Multicultural Review"Article| Ruben Gallo| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Dead Girls
☯ Full Synopsis : "With an introduction by award-winning novelist Colm Tóibín Opening with a crime of passion after a years-long love affair has soured, The Dead Girls soon plunges into an investigation of something even darker: Serafina Baladro and her sister run a successful brothel business in a small town, so successful that they begin to expand. But when business starts to falter, life in the brothel turns ugly, and slowly, girls start disappearing . . . Based on real events, the story of serial-killing brothel owners Delfina and María de Jésus González, whose crimes were uncovered in 1964, The Dead Girls is a deliciously satirical black comedy - a potent blend of sex and mayhem. Written in the laconic tones of a police report, it cleverly uncovers the hopeless pedantry of a broken justice system, and the dark world of prostitution."Article| Jorge Ibargüengoitia| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Antiheroes
☯ Full Synopsis : ""In this book, Stavans uses his investigative and narrative talents to tackle the work of such internationally reputed figures as Carlos Fuentes, Paco Ignacio Taibo II, and Jorge Ibarguengoitia. He also explores the work of such lesser-known authors as Rafael Bernal and Rodolfo Usigli, and he contextualizes the whole tradition of Mexican thrillers by exploring the influential critical commentaries of scholars and journalists like Alfonso Reyes and Carlos Monsivais and by using as his foundational approach the views of Bakhtin." "Stavans's overall argument is that, in a national arena where moral decadence and political corruption prevail, the detective genre has been forced to embrace the hard-boiled model of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, rather than exploring its links to the more high-brow, sophisticated British tradition of Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie. An enlightening treatise on parody as a literary device, this book is a fiesta that students of Latin American literature in particular, and fans of the art of slighting in general, will not want to miss."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
