Customer comments on this Youngstown Ohio Book
eyes of a blue dog
i read this book for a class while i was in college. i was already a huge fan of magical realism and all of the surreal bits that go along with reading latin american literature, so reading this compilation was such a pleasure. you can skip around and included before each story is a brief outline and history of the author. i never get tired of rediscovering it on my bookshelf.
a feast for the mind and imagination
I read this book for a counseling class. It is one of the best books I've ever read for a class. While learning a wealth of information about the widely diverse cultures represented in this book, one's imagination is ignited and inspired. This is a book full of pathos, magic, and adventures of the mind. An excellent point of departure for those interested in Latin American cultures and people.

This is a fantastic introduction to the rich rich world of Latin American Literature. If you are already familiar with this unique body of literature, this anthology can only expand your horizons further. Because of this book I was lead to to explore further the great works of Machado de Assis, Allende, and Amado, among others. Open this book and open yourself up to a rich new world of imagination!
