Series Literatures of the Americas

Examining a rich new generation of Latin American writers, this timely collection offers new perspectives on the current status of Latin American literature in the age of globalization. Essays examine the anthology McOndo, which rejected magical realism as the primary literary mode of Latin America, and the Crack group, which argued for a return to more complex narrative, as turning points for Latin American narratives and for a new generation of authors. Instead of perpetuating the simple blueprint of Postboom magical realism, this volume argues that the authors studied in here combine social preoccupations, such as drug trafficking, with aesthetic ones. In many cases, authors like the Crack group members, Roberto Bolaño, Rodrigo Fresán, Evelio Rosero, or Ena Lucía Portela, directly dialogue with the Boom authors while other authors, like Diego Trelles Paz or Yolanda Arroyo, utilize new technologies to create dynamic creative projects.
