9789681685942: Sun, Stone and Shadows: 20 Great Mexican Short Stories

La presente antología publicada en inglés reúne 20 relatos de extraordinaria calidad, de la autoría de escritores que representan una muestra de la mejor literatura mexicana de la primera mitad del siglo XX. El lector recorrerá en estos párrafos la irrealidad fantástica, los paisajes perfectamente reconocibles de la realidad y el pasado palpable de la historia de México; asimismo, transitará entre los reflejos urbanos de lo cotidiano y la íntima imaginación que distingue a México de otros paisajes, otras culturas, otra literatura.

Review:

Literature is perhaps Mexico's best landscape, encompassing both past and present, revealing the multiple colors of its geographic expanse and the shapes of its imagination and memory. The Short story provides our best and quickest view - or our most faithful mirror- of all things Mexican. This anthology presents a collection of twenty tales of extraordinary quality, written by the finest Mexican authors. --Josefina Vazquez Mota, Minister of Public Education. Mexico
