About the Author

Anibal Gonzalez is professor of modern Latin American literature in the department of Spanish and Portuguese at Yale University. He is the author of numerous books and several translations. His recent publications include Love and Politics in the Contempo


We have read the Latin American novel as reconfigurations of history, ethnological recoveries, and political interventions, but we neglected to look at the powerful undercurrents of belief, faith, and epiphanic vision that are a true dimension of their inner creativity. Gonzalez and his book of revelations discover that poetic knowledge has shaped their storytelling with epiphanies and transfiguration. Nothing of the human experience was estranged to these fictions, not even religion."" - Julio Ortega, Brown University

""Gonzalez, one of his generation's most accomplished scholars of Spanish American Literature, offers a remarkable, erudite, and imaginative re-reading of the region's modern fiction, with the compelling argument that, culminating with the Boom, the novel aspired to a reader experience comparable to effects generated by what many cultures regard as 'sacred texts,' only to critique and dismantle these aspirations in the late twentieth century and new millennium."" - Vicky Unruh, University of Kansas
