Latin American Narrative of the Latter Half of the Twentieth Century: Beyond the “Boom”

Summary of the Book

This collection of unpublished conference papers and/or classroom lectures explores very contemporary texts of Latin American writers keeping in mind both the scholarly as well as the general reader. It includes some very respectable writers like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Roberto Bolaño and Eduardo Galeano for example, but also lesser known ones in India like Daniel Castro, Carlos Montemayor or Cristina Peri Rossi among many others. This would be the first book of its kind to be published from India and purports to introduce the texts of the above mentioned writers to Indians who can now be able to buy books in English translation on-line. Many of the problems raised in this book continue to be very “third-worldly” and very comparable to some Indian situations. The aim of this book is not to respond as a  knowledge “packaged” for passive consumption. It is rather a point of departure for engaging with them from within historic and academic grids in a near future.
