I can see that, but he also gets read in translation in Spanish enough he could "squeeze" in.


message 9: by Julie (new)

Julie Veronika Decides to Die is about a Slovenian woman in Slovenia, not even close to being about Latino/Latina culture ???


message 10: by Max (new)

Max Roostr This is racist. A list called "books for white people" would not be tolerated, but this is? Lists like this should be removed.


message 11: by Fiona (last edited Nov 25, 2013 05:48AM) (new)

Fiona Hurley Latino/Latina is a cultural designation, not a race. You can be white and Latino, black and Latino, mixed race and Latino....
The equivalent of "Latino/Latina fiction" is not "books for white people" but "Scandinavian fiction", "Irish fiction", "Indian fiction", "South African fiction" etc.


message 12: by Cinda (new)

Cinda MacKinnon There are a number of books that have nothing to do with Latino fiction and should be removed. Some great books (Memoirs of a Geisha and Empire Falls etc) but they belong on another list - NOT this one!


message 13: by Cinda (new)

Cinda MacKinnon Is there a MULTICULTURAL list?


message 14: by Ladynight (new)

Ladynight How is "Demons & Angels" a latina/latino Fiction?


message 15: by Dionisio (new)

Dionisio De There is a Nazi placing books on this list. There are several books titled Mein Kempf authored by different people. How are these books removed?


message 16: by Katie (new)

Katie Gatto Never realized so many great books were written by latinos!


message 17: by Dionisio (new)

Dionisio De Katie: What is listed here is only the tip of the iceberg. I will get more involved with this list because it looks like there are many mistakes. I'm still waiting to hear from someone as to how to remove trash that ill-meaning souls have placed there.


message 18: by Debaparna (new)

Debaparna How come Angels and Demons by Dan Brown is being counted as magical realist?


message 19: by Dionisio (new)

Dionisio De I haven't read Dan Brown but there are a lot of books written outside the Latin@ world which are considered magical realism fiction. Although, MR was mastered by the likes of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Juan Rulfo and so many other Latino writers, MR was taken by writers from all over the world (Salman Rushdie is a case in point).


message 20: by Debaparna (new)

Debaparna Dionisio wrote: "I haven't read Dan Brown but there are a lot of books written outside the Latin@ world which are considered magical realism fiction. Although, MR was mastered by the likes of Gabriel Garcia Marquez..."

Yes I understand that. But there's no way Dan Brown's works can be classified as magical realism. One can call them thriller, crime, detective, fiction, pulp fiction, spy mystery, et cetera. But not magical realist.


message 21: by Dionisio (new)

Dionisio De Ok, you got me there since I'm not familiar with D. Brown's books. I've seen the movies and judging by that alone I can see how someone might jump to the conclusion that his writings contains MR elements. Now, as a separate question is Dan Brown in the Latina/Latino Fiction list? If that is so, it would be a mistake. If not, where did you see Dan Brown with the MR literature?


message 22: by Debaparna (new)

Debaparna It's here in the Latina/Latino list - Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. Its on the first page of the list, title no. 94.


message 23: by Dionisio (new)

Dionisio De Ok, so the main problem is not whether or not Angels and Demons is a MR novel, the problem is that no work by Dan Brown belongs on this list. What is Latino about him or Angels and Demons? No. 94 needs to be removed at once from the list, but I see that the list is in dire need of a serious "spring cleaning." Are you up to the task? We can work together at this, if you wish.


message 24: by Sara (new)

Sara Reis I have removed some books from this list that have nothing to do with the title of the list.
