Overview

This bilingual anthology reflects the geographic and cultural diversity of the Spanish-speaking world. Encompassing the literary traditions of Central America, South America, and Spain, the stories range in mood from comic and ironic to gritty and fantastical. Featured authors include Silvina Ocampo, Julio Ramón Ribeyro, Augusto Roa Bastos, Gloria Guardia, Paloma Díaz-Mas, José María Merino, Enrique Jaramillo Levi, and others.
This inexpensive volume offers intermediate-level students the convenient, accessible format of English translations on pages facing the original text.
