"The authors of this timely collection provide a solid account of the nature of post-politics and the subsequent demise of the idea of the nation in contemporary Latin American narrative, also scrutinizing the crucial role of the Internet in the construction of a simultaneously global and local new Latin American Republic of Letters." - J. Agustin Pasten B., Professor of Latin American Literature, North Carolina State University, USA
"An incisive critical and historical analysis of the newest trends in Latin American narrative, this authoritative volume captures the iconoclastic temperament of the continent's post-national literary movements at the break of the 21st century, answering the what, how, and why of the emergence of groups and figures such as McOndo, Crack, MoHo, Bolano, Volpi, and others, in the context of conflictual globalization and the shifting market forces of postmodern culture. It is an essential update to find out what comes after magical realism, the Boom, and the dissolution of the traditional literary canon." - Erik Camayd-Freixas, Professor of Spanish, Florida International University, USA and author of Etnografia imaginaria: Historia y parodia en la literatura hispanoamericana
