The relationship between historical or traumatic events and the memories created by them are examined in this selection of essays by writers who have been affected by the social and political upheavals of Latin America during the past four decades. Recognizing the impact these events have had upon both collective and individual memory, these essayists also recall hard times living through the McCarthy era and the AIDS epidemic as well as the effects of living in exile from Chile and the bicultural reality around the U.S. border with Mexico. Contributors include Nancy Barra, Claudia Bernardi, Julio Cortázar, June Carolyn Erlick, Eduardo Galeano, Maria Rosa Lojo, and Peter Winn.

About the Author:

Marjorie Agosín is the Luella Lamer Slain Professor of Latin American Studies at Wellesley College. She is the author of three memoirs, an autobiography, and many volumes of poetry, including Among the Angels of Memory, the Spanish language version of which won the 2007 International Latino Book Award.

Review:

"One of our necessary voices, a magical singer who will not be defeated by history."  —Edward Hirsch, author, For the Sleepwalkers

"Agosín's poetic language engages the reader in a mesmerizing journey of inward reflection and exile."  —Isabel Allende, author, The House of the Spirits

"Agosín is a mystic poet whose clarity of vision is superceded only by her courage."  —Demetria Martínez, author, Mother Tongue
