FROM THE PUBLISHER - This second novel by the brilliant young Mexican author of WHERE THE AIR IS CLEAR is a powerful, lusty, and searching story of youth in a world of change. The scene is Guanajuato, a provincial capital in Central Mexico, once one of the world’s richest mining centers. The Ceballos family has been reinstated to power, and adolescent Jaime Ceballos, its only heir, is torn between the practical reality of his family’s world and the idealism of his youth and Catholic education. His father is a good man, but weak; his uncle is powerful, yet his actions are inconsistent with his professed beliefs. Jaime’s struggle to emerge as a man with a ‘good conscience’ forms the theme of the book: can a rebel correct the evils of an established system, and, at the same time, retain the integrity of his principles? Carlos Fuentes has spent a large part of his life in France, England and the United States as the son of a Mexican diplomat. Having studied law at the University of Mexico and the University of Geneva, he decided against law as a career and began to devote himself to writing. A keen student of the people, politics and history of Mexico, he has frequently made these topics the basis for his writings. His first novel, La Region Mas Transparente, was a bestseller in Mexico. Published here under the title WHERE THE AIR IS CLEAR, it was an immediate critical success. .
