Formerly exiled Chilean author Ariel Dorfman, one of Latin America's greatest writers and a major literary figure of the twentieth century, is known for such critically acclaimed works as the novel Widows and the play Death and the Maiden. A master of various literary forms, this collection draws together Dorfman's critical essays on contemporary Latin American writing. Spanning more than twenty years and arranged in chronological order, each essay is devoted to a single author-Miguel Angel Asturias, Jorge Luis Borges, Jose Maria Arguedas, Alejo Carpentier, Gabrial Garcia Marquez, Roa Bastos-and one final essay looks at the "testimonial" or concentration camp literature from Chile.

"A remarkable writer . . . writing out of a very different cultural perspective from comfortable American readers."-Digby Diehl, Los Angeles Herald Examiner

"One of the six greatest Latin American novelists."-Jacobo Timmerman, Newsweek
