The winner of Guggenheim and Social Science Research Council grants, Diamela Eltit is the key figure in radical ficiton from Latin America. She has been translated into French, English, and Finnish. A professor at Santiago's Metropolitan Technological University, Eltit has taught at Columbia, Berkeley, Stanford, Washington, Pittsburgh, and John's Hopkins Universities. She was recently appointed Global Professor at NYU.From Library Journal:
In the preface of this, her first book (published in 1983), Chilean writer Eltit confesses that her works are difficult to read, which must have made translating E. Luminata a daunting task. Christ rises to the challenge, deservedly winning the 1997 Kayden National Translation Award for rendering this work into English. Eltit's experimental novel consists of a series of scenes that include interrogation sessions and events occurring in a public park after dark that one would more likely expect to find in a modern dance performance than in a novel. Eltit interrupts these scenes with analyses that shatter any thoughts that the reader may have been forming regarding what was just read. For its innovative form, remarkable craftsmanship, and the issues raised in its content?the personal and societal effects of dictatorship?this important work is highly recommended for public and academic libraries.?Carolyn Ellis Gonzalez, U.S. Army Knowledge Management Network, San Antonio, Tex.
