it was amazing
bookshelves: latin-american, literature

There are so many amazing Latin American writers. There are so many amazing Latin American political satires. How have these people survived all the dictatorships? All the US brutal interference in their countries? It's practically miraculous. Maybe that's one explanation for Magical Realism: you'd have to feel like miracles were happening if you were a critical intellectual surviving the Argentinian dictatorships of the 1970s. This particular author survived by being exiled to Mexico. The novel is about a poetry club whose members are all marked for death by a death squad.
