Bringing the Argentine novel to your fingertips, this supplement to 1997's The Argentine Novel: An Annotated Bibliography, completes Myron Lichtblau's sweeping coverage of an exciting literary genre through the end of the 20th century. The new installment covers the period from 1990 through the end of the decade, including Cesar Aira's El congreso de literatura, making the collective efforts a comprehensive compendium of the Argentine novel from its beginnings in the late 18th century to the present. Extremely detailed in scope, each entry includes an examination of subsequent editions, reprintings, translations, as well as excerpts from critical commentaries that appeared in newspapers and journals in Argentina and the United States. Additional citations to the authors and their works add worthwhile references for further study. The supplement also includes some one hundred pre-1990 novels and critical studies that were omitted in the original volume. Novels of all kinds are represented in the bibliography, including detective fiction and novels of the fantastic.
A very useful end-bibliography contains not only reference works cited in the text but many other journal articles, essays, and books that document the story of the Argentine novel in the last decade of the century. A must for all comparative literature collections, this exhaustive work serves as an important guide to popular reading, and will appeal to scholars, students, and those interested in Hispanic literature.
