Synopsis: The nine stories comprising this brilliant new work all concern people who have had something to do with the family of one Leonardo Barroso, a powerful oligarch of northern Mexico with manifold connections to the United States. This exuberant fiction contains and alludes to journalism, politics, economics, famous tall tales, and picaresque adventures, all united by the "vitality, variety, and narrative force that Fuentes always gives his work"--(La Jornada).

About the Author: Carlos Fuentes is the author of more than a dozen novels -- including most recently The Years with Laura Diaz -- as well as several works of nonfiction. He has received many awards for his accomplishments. He divides his time between Mexico City and London.
