Speed of Dreams by Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos
Book DescriptionSince the publication of Our Word Is Our Weapon-which Publishers Weekly described as "strong as dignity and as subtle as love"-Mexico's enigmatic Zapatista leader has written some of his most brilliant and complex works. From a retelling of indigenous myths and legends, to visions of the future of Mexico, from searing critiques of the US war in Iraq, to clandestine radio broadcasts from the jungles of Chiapas, here is an amazing selection of writing that gives voice to the literary and poetic genius of Latin America's greatest living writer and rebel.
