About the Author:

Thomas Colchie is an acclaimed translator, editor, and literary agent for international authors. He is the editor of A Hammock Beneath the Mangoes. He has written for the Village Voice and The Washington Post. His translations include Manuel Puig's Kiss of the Spider Woman and (with Elizabeth Bishop, Gregory Rabassa, and Mark Strand) Carlos Drummond de Andrade's Travelling in the Family.

From Library Journal:

This cornucopia of delights presents to English-speaking readers a one-volume assortment of the representative best of the giants of recent Latin American letters: Borges, Cortazar, Garcia Marquez, Fuentes, Lispector. Only the absence of Donoso, Vargas Llosa, and especially Arreola's modern classic "The Switchman" prevents it from being definitive. Although most of the stories have been previously published and translated, this collection marks the first time these 26 powerhouses have been brought together. Since nothing recent combines Spanish American and Brazilian authors, nor includes newer writers not readily found elsewhere, this anthology is highly recommended for all collections.
