New Book on the Global Latin American Novel

Title:  Beyond Bolaño: The Global Latin American Novel

Author: Hector Hoyos, Assistant Professor of Latin American Literature and Culture at Stanford University.

The first monographic, theoretical study of Latin American novelistic representations of globalization of its kind. Through a comparative analysis of the novels of Roberto Bolaño and the fiction of César Aira, Mario Bellatin, Diamela Eltit, Chico Buarque, Alberto Fuguet, and Fernando Vallejo, among others, Héctor Hoyos defines new trends in how we read and write in a globalized era. Calling attention to fresh innovations in form, voice, perspective, and representation, he also affirms the lead role of Latin American authors in reshaping world literature.
