About this Item: Dutton, 1991. hardcover. 1st edition. New York. 1991. Dutton. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket With A Few Small Tears & One Small Piece Missing From The Top Front. 434 pages. November 1991. hardcover. Jacket illustration by Cathleen Toekle. ISBN: 0525933670. inventory # 34722. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This splendid collection of stories by 26 Latin American authors features the new voices and celebrated masters of one of the world’s foremost literatures. Included are Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Rosario Ferre, Juan Carlos Onetti, Manuel Puig, Joao Ubaldo Ribeiro, and others. From the erotic comedies by Isabel Allende and Jorge Amado to the playful labyrinths of Guillermo Cabrera Infante’s London streets or Armonia Somers’ roomful of clocks. A HAMMOCK BENEATH THE MANGOES offers abundant reading pleasure for those simply curious about, or already captivated by the magic of Latin America’s fiction. Organized geographically, this innovative anthology includes a number of stories never before published in English, and captures the extraordinary variety of themes and styles embodying that peculiarly Latin American vision of the world. Also included are short biographies of the authors that place their works in context. Explores the gothic sexual ambiguities of Carlos Fuentes’ ‘The Doll Queen’, the psychological compression of Clarice Lispector’s ‘Love’, or the baroque pyrotechnics of Machado de Assis and Adofo Bioy Casares. Discover the parodically ‘hard-boiled’ detective fiction of Ana Lydia Vega and some decidedly ‘soft-boiled’ criminals in Rubem Fonseca’s ‘Lonelyhearts’. From Horacio Quiroga’s ‘The Dead Man’, who is disturbingly alive, to the quintessential feat of magical realism found in Alejo Carpentier’s ‘Journey Back to the Source’. A HAMMOCK BENEATH THE MANGOES reveals the virtuosity of Latin American literature at it finest, and provides an illuminating journey into dreamlike and unexpected worlds. CONTENTS/ Introduction; 1.
