Its acknowledged place in Latin American fiction and its appeal to a fresh generation of readers have warranted this new translation by Alfred Mac Adam, translator (with the author) of Fuentes's "Christopher Unborn." As in all his fiction, but perhaps most powerfully in this book, Fuentes is a passionate guide to the ironies of Mexican history, the burden of its past, and the anguish of its present.Hide synopsis

I have a graduate degree in Literature, and I read widely, including Proust. So--I read a book by this author 30 years ago, Terra Nostra, a mammoth work of history and fiction, and was mucho impressed!! My book group picked this one. I am about 1/3 through, and not all that impressed. I get the impressionistic style somewhat awkwardly joined to a range of philosophical issues/comments, enhanced by a literary story-telling skill that relies on the reader's abilities to organize subtle cues. I'll let you know what I think when I'm done reading it. Three stars for the first 1/3.
