9789705800078: La frontera de cristal/ The Crystal Frontier: A Novel in Nine Stories (Spanish Edition)

Using an imaginary glass wall, Carlos Fuentes creates a lens through which he examines the violence, discrimination and racism suffered by Mexican immigrants crossing the border into the US in a quest for a better life. In these nine stories that deal with the separation between Mexico and the Unites States, Fuentes is able to find humor even amongst the tumbling ruins of an immigrant s dream.
Description in Spanish: Nueve relatos sobre la separacion entre Mexico y Estados Unidos. Una ruptura vista desde el cristal del racismo, la discriminacion y la violencia que han padecido los mexicanos al atravesar la frontera, donde los suenos se desvanecen ante la voraz realidad. Y, a pesar de todo, hay en esta obra lugar para el humor.
