The Contemporary Spanish-American Novel provides an accessible introduction to an important World literature. While many of the authors covered?Aira, Bola?o, Castellanos Moya, V?squez?are gaining an increasing readership in English and are frequently taught, there is sparse criticism in English beyond book reviews. This book provides the guidance necessary for a more sophisticated and contextualized understanding of these authors and their works. Underestimated or unfamiliar Spanish American novels and novelists are introduced through conceptually rigorous essays.

Sections on each writer include:

*the author's reception in their native country, Spanish America, and Spain
*biographical history
*a critical examination of their work, including key themes and conceptual concerns
*translation history
*scholarly reception

The Contemporary Spanish-American Novel offers an authoritative guide to a rich and varied novelistic tradition. It covers all demographic areas, including United States Latino authors, in exploring the diversity of this literature and its major themes, such as exile, migration, and gender representation.
