Om Contemporary Spanish-American Novel

Underestimated or unfamiliar Spanish American novels and novelists are introduced through conceptually rigorous essays. Sections on each writer include:*the author's reception in their native country, Spanish America, and Spain*biographical history*a critical examination of their work, including key themes and conceptual concerns*translation history*scholarly receptionThe Contemporary Spanish-American Novel offers an authoritative guide to a rich and varied novelistic tradition. It covers all demographic areas, including United States Latino authors, in exploring the diversity of this literature and its major themes, such as exile, migration, and gender representation.
