Victoria Ocampo's voice in these selections from her writings is personal and refreshingly candid. Her autobiography reveals what it was like to grow up female in Argentina -- a society with rigid preconceptions about the role of women. Her essays disclose her development as a woman, a feminist, and a writer who interacted with major literary figures in the Americas and Europe. As a prolific writer and the founder and publisher of Sur, the Argentine literary review devoted to international exchange, Victoria Ocampo was a key figure in twentieth-century Latin American letters. Until now most of her work has been unavailable in English. Steiner's translations make Ocampo's memoirs, letters, and essays accessible to readers with interests in autobiography, in the literature and culture of Latin America, and in the development of feminist thought.
