About the book:

"An extraordinary display of historical inquisitiveness and stylistic maturity."-The New York Times Book Review

Exploring the consequences of the European discovery of the Americas and challenging the myth of Columbus, Alejo Carpentier-"the father of magical realism"-studies the first meetings of the Western and American cultures and the tragic consequences of tarnished and abandoned idealism.

Alejo Carpentier (1904‚¨1980) is considered one of the fathers of modern Latin American literature. He lived in Cuba, France, and Venezuela.

Thomas Christensen and Carol Christensen have translated the works of Julio Cort√°zar, Laura Esquivel, and Carlos Fuentes.
