Book summary

Arranged alphabetically from ''Amore'' to ''Zurich,'' this is a marvelous inner journey with a great writer. In it we find reflections on the curses and blessings of globalization; a fond tracing of a family tree heavy with poets and dreamers; evocations of the streets and cafes of Washington, Paris, Cambridge, Oaxaca, and New York; and a celebration of literary heroes including Cervantes, Faulkner, Kafka, and Shakespeare. Here are heartbreaking and vivid glimpses into his personal life. ''Silvia'' is a powerful love letter to his beloved wife. Description in Spanish: Este libro es una suerte de autobiografia literaria y, como un diccionario, se construye con entradas tematicas ordenadas de la A a la Z. De amistad a Zurich, pasando por Bunuel, Familia, Izquierda, Jesus, Novela, Politica y Sexo, esta obra es un acto de fe en los valores humanos, una bitacora de ideas y experiencias. La lucida prosa de Fuentes asi como la profusion de datos y referencia, resultan sumamente convincentes y aleccionadores. [via]
