Book Description

21 Nov 2005
Carlos Fuentes is Mexico's most admired novelist, and this is his manifesto, and memoir, offering a rare and wonderful insight into the mind of a great writer. This I Believe is an A to Z of the things that he loves and believes in. In a series of inspired meditations and polemics, he embraces his subjects such as 'Balzac' and 'Beauty' and 'Sex' and 'Shakespeare'. The essays are woven together with the familiar Fuentes themes of politics, time and language, and through them runs the vein of his personal journey, his views on love, sex, women, friendship and family. From 'Amor' to 'Zurich', this is a collection of thoughts that is both witty and profoundly searching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional essays. 22 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Impressive, thoughtful and moving essays by one of the most influential artists of Mexico in the last sixty years. They benefit for non-Mexican readers because Carlos Fuentes has a critical but sympathetic understanding of the Western World. Beautifully wriotten and very frank.
