    One thought on “Mexico: A Traveler's Literary Companion”

    1. This collection was offered to me just before I traveled to Mexico. It made me realize that I had never read a book by a Mexican author, in spite of renown writers as Octavio Paz and Carlos Fuentes. I have since been correcting this fault and this volume was a handful introduction. Although it has not been my main source of information, it also stimulated me to explore further some of the authors included in it.As it is organized according to the different geographical areas of Mexico, I started [...]

    2. I was in a small town in Mexico. The book I had brought was unbearable.

Very popular in Mexico, virtually unknown in [...]

    5. I am loving this collection of short stories by writers from different regions of Mexico and edited by Catherine Mayo.

    6. One of the best collections of literary works about Mexico, edited by acclaimed literary journalist/ translator C.M. Mayo. She arranged the contributions by geography in Mexico, so the book leads readers on a journey from the U.S. Borderlands through the North, into Central Mexico, along the Gulf of Mexico, the Yucatan peninsula, and the South and Southwest. Many familiar names inform and guide the traveler along the way – Reveles, Fuentes, Esquivel – plus Mayo herself. It served as a concep [...]
