Into the Mainstream: Conversations with Latin-American Writers
Harper & Row, 1967 - Latin American fiction History and criticism - 385 pages
Luis Harss and Barbara Dohmann traveled throughout Latin America talking to the authors in their native environments. We get a background of the literature of each writer's country as well as a view of the social and political situtation. But more particularly we are introduced to the fictional world of each of these men and to their very original conceptions of human experience. The writers interviewed here include Alejo Carpentier, Miguel Angel Asturias, Jorge Luis Borges, Joao Guimaraes Rosa, Juan Carlos Onetti, Julio Cortazar, Juan Rulfo, Carlos Fuentes, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Mario Vargas Llosa. --Harper & Row.
