Mexico: A Travelers Literary Companion (Travelers Literary Companions) by Mayo, C. M.

Mexico has long been the top travel destination for Americans. But until now, there has not been such a panoramic vision of Mexico offered by some of Mexicos finest contemporary writers of fiction and literary prose. Here are writings-many translated for the first time-that bring you to the people of the beaches, the deserts, jungles, snow-capped mountains, and megacities. The voices are rich and diverse, the stories enthralling and strange. These writings shatter stereotypes as they provide a rollicking journey from the Pacific to the Gulf, from Yucatan to border slums, from humble ranchos to a fabulous mountaintop castle. Contributors include rising stars as well as many of Mexicos best-known literary writers, including: Fernando del Paso, Elena Poniatowska, Carlos Fuentes, Angeles Mastretta, Alberto Ruy-Sanchez, Ilan Stavans, and Juan Villoro. C.M. Mayo is a winner of the Flannery OConnor Award for Short Fiction and founding editor of Tameme, one of the most prestigious publishers of Spanish/English literary translation.
