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.
