☯ 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 ..."

☯ 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.

☯ Full Synopsis : "With an introduction by award-winning novelist Colm Tóibín In 1960s Central Mexico, two sisters, Delfina and María de Jesús González, known as 'Las Poquianchis', run a small-town brothel. Kidnapped, drugged and beaten, their young workers are desperate for escape. The Dead Girls is the discovery of these young women, buried in the back yard. In the laconic tones of a police report, Jorge Ibargüengoitia investigates these horrific murders and their motives. A black comedy, both moving and cruelly funny, Ibargüengoitia's work is a potent and entertaining blend of sex and mayhem."Article| Jorge Ibargüengoitia| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo, who ruled the Dominican Republic from 1930 until his assassination in 1961, was one of the longest and bloodiest in Latin American history. The Dictator’s Seduction is a cultural history of the Trujillo regime as it was experienced in the capital city of Santo Domingo. Focusing on everyday forms of state domination, Lauren Derby describes how the regime infiltrated civil society by fashioning a “vernacular politics” based on popular idioms of masculinity and fantasies of race and class mobility. Derby argues that the most pernicious aspect of the dictatorship was how it appropriated quotidian practices such as gossip and gift exchange, leaving almost no place for Dominicans to hide or resist. Drawing on previously untapped documents in the Trujillo National Archives and interviews with Dominicans who recall life under the dictator, Derby emphasizes the role that public ritual played in Trujillo’s exercise of power. His regime included the people in affairs of state on a massive scale as never before. Derby pays particular attention to how events and projects were received by the public as she analyzes parades and rallies, the rebuilding of Santo Domingo following a major hurricane, and the staging of a year-long celebration marking the twenty-fifth year of Trujillo’s regime. She looks at representations of Trujillo, exploring how claims that he embodied the popular barrio antihero the tíguere (tiger) stoked a fantasy of upward mobility and how a rumor that he had a personal guardian angel suggested he was uniquely protected from his enemies. The Dictator’s Seduction sheds new light on the cultural contrivances of autocratic power."Article| Lauren H. Derby| Statement ..."
