Writings of Mexico's finest contemporary writers of fiction and literary prose.-many translated for the first time-that bring you to the people of the beaches, the deserts, jungles, snow-capped mountains, and megacities.

Amazon
CM Mayo

Mexico has long been the top travel destination for Americans. But until now, there has not been such a panoramic vision of Mexico offered by some of Mexico's finest contemporary writers of fiction and literary prose. Here are writings-many translated for the first time-that bring you to the people of the beaches, the deserts, jungles, snow-capped mountains, and megacities.

The voices are rich and diverse, the stories enthralling and strange. These writings shatter stereotypes as they provide a rollicking journey from the Pacific to the Gulf, from Yucatan to border slums, from humble ranchos to a fabulous mountaintop castle.

Contributors include rising stars as well as many of Mexico's best-known literary writers, including: Fernando del Paso, Elena Poniatowska, Carlos Fuentes, Angeles Mastretta, Alberto Ruy-Sanchez, Ilan Stavans, and Juan Villoro.

This book... may go on to find its place, very naturally, as one of the outstanding contemporary works on this country... "—David Huerta, El Universal, Mexico City

Margaret Sayers Peden, editor, Mexican Writers on Writing
"This delicious volume has lovingly gathered a banquet of piecesthat reveal Mexico in all its infinite variety, its splendidgeography, its luminous peoples. What a treat!"

Los Angeles Times Book Review
This is a book to throw in a suitcase or mochila (backpack) on the way to Mexicoor just settling into a favorite patio chair. It will open your eyes, fill you with pleasure and render our perennial vecinos a little less distante."
