Voices, Visions, and a New Reality
Mexican Fiction Since 1970
J. Ann Duncan has written a lucid, informative and distinctive work, whose scope is captured effectively in the title. Within the very rich field of Mexican 'post-boom' narrative, she focuses on those writers whose prose, as the title intimates, is innovative and experimental, whose work 'widens our definition of literature.' The writers to whom chapters are dedicated are Jose Emilio Pacheco (1939), Carlos Montemayer (1947), Humberto Guzman (1948), Esther Seligson (1942), Antonio Delgado (1941), and Jesus Gardea (1939).
