FROM THE PUBLISHER - Latin American short stories of the sixties and seventies were considered to be among the best in the world. Writers such as Borges, Rulfo, Carpentier, and Garcia Marquez produced remarkable and exhilarating work that found a receptive audience in Britain and North America. In FABER BOOK OF CONTEMPORARY LATIN AMERICAN SHORT STORIES Nick Caistor sets out to explore the wealth of fiction produced since this so-called boom. With stories from Isabel Allende, Joao Ubaldo Ribeiro and other, as yet unfamiliar names, this exciting and diverse collection demonstrates that the creative upsurge continues to flourish. The twenty stories represent work from the whole continent, including the United States. Many are published here in English for the firs time. They are exciting proof of the enduring vitality of a literature that continues to defy categorization and to enjoy a worldwide appeal.
