      What made you choose Conversation in the Cathedral? Nunn writes that "novelists of the Boom themselves evinced a sophisticated grasp of their genre's ability to depict parallel and alternative history. Then one day from the safety of a tree, Gabi witnesses the sights and sounds of an unspeakable massacre. Every year Layla picks another country she wants to live in.

Ideas for books to include, of course, have come easily, but it has been more difficult to select those to highlight. Like Hugo Chavez with his weekly television programmes. What Galeano discusses and covers is as important and applicable today as it was in the '70s, and also speaks to the difficult history between the United States with its backward foreign policy and the rest of the Americas. The rest--over ten and a half million--were taken to the Caribbean and Latin America.

      In this book, Klein collects together the work of the generations of historians since the end of World War II who have studied slavery in the Americas, which emphasizes both the horrors of the Middle Passage and the back-breaking labour on the plantations and in the mines of the New World as well as the surprising ways in which enslaved peoples shaped their own destinies. In general—and considering there are many countries and hundreds of important authors—at the start of the period, Realism prevails, with novels tinged by an existentialist pessimism, with well-rounded characters lamenting their destinies, and a straightforward narrative line. This book like all trickster tales was a favorite of my 4 year old. But this is misleading. Paz was a much more cerebral poet, but he shared with Neruda an epic flair in poems such as Piedra de Sol ; Sun Stone and also a penchant for erotic themes.
