it was amazing

Read it for a class on El Boom literature and fell in love with it. Then the class (a tiny one of 8 grad students majoring in English) was treated to a special surprise. Our prof knew Fuentes (and Luisa Valenzuela) and arranged for us lowly grad students to have dinner with these two brilliant novelists and talk books! So we did. The book's seamless blending of times, characters and ideas is profound which makes The Death of Artemio Cruz a masterpiece of magical realism.
