Product Details


“He more than anyone renovated the language of fiction and thus opened the way to a remarkable generation of Spanish-American novelists. Gabriel García Márquez, Carlos Fuentes, José Donoso, and Mario Vargas Llosa have all acknowledged their debt to him.” —J.M. Coetzee, The New York Review of Books

“He has lifted fiction away from the flat earth where most of our novels and short stories still take place.” —John Updike
