Book summary

The nine stories comprising this brilliant new work all concern people who have had something to do with the family of one Leonardo Barroso, a powerful oligarch of northern Mexico with manifold connections to the United States. This exuberant fiction contains and alludes to journalism, politics, economics, famous tall tales, and picaresque adventures, all united by the "vitality, variety, and narrative force that Fuentes always gives his work"--(La Jornada).
