Este segundo tomo de las Obras reunidas de Carlos Fuentes contiene dos de sus obras narrativas m s significativas sobre la ciudad de M xico: la regi n m s transparente y la colecci n de cuentos Agua quemada. la primera, un suceso en la literatura mexicana, se public inicialmente en el Fondo de Cultura Econ mica en 1958 y nos muestra una urbe v ctima de transformaciones radicales despu s de la Revoluci n Mexicana en su vida social, pol tica y econ mica. Los cuentos de Agua quemada se publicaron tambi n por primera vez en 1981 en el FCE, y son retratos que forman en conjunto una imagen m s compleja por su calidad fragmentaria, pero al mismo tiempo reflejan el deterioro de la que fue llamada "la Ciudad de los Palacios", convertida en lugar de carencias y "violencia impune". Estas obras contribuyen a revelar a la ciudad como personaje de la literatura.
