Praise

Advance praise for This I Believe

“In This I Believe, Carlos Fuentes brilliantly explores an alphabet of the human condition, from A to Z, from art to politics, from love to death. This is a dazzling book by a truly civilized man.”
–Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.

“Erudite, charming, witty, and often moving, this book has a bit of everything and something for everyone.”
–Hugh Thomas, author of Rivers of Gold

Advance Praise from the UK for This I Believe

“[A] passionate engagement with literature and art . . . This I Believe gathers his recent reflections on literature, history and politics, as well as some more intimate explorations of his own private experience. These writings . . . draw together many of the themes and concerns of a rich and vibrant literary life.”
–The Herald

“Stimulating . . . [Fuentes] gives us a personal alphabet of the authors he admires . . . the politics he espouses . . . plus a few of the aesthetic and philosophical truths he has picked up. . . . Magnificent.”
–The Daily Telegraph

“A characteristically dazzling display of Fuentes’ erudition and of a remarkable life, divided between politics and literature, seasoned by success on several continents, and marred by personal tragedy. . . . Rich and imaginative . . . [with] flashes of [Fuentes’] soul.”
–Financial Times
