Description - The Lights of Home by Jason Weiss
A fascinating look at the peculiar role of Paris as a key location in the Latin American literary lansdscape - a place where the canonical Latin American writers (Garcia-Marquez, Vargas Llosa, Paz, Neruda etc) converged, and in many cases where they chose to spend the greater part of their adult lives. Part biography, part literary criticism, this book should be of great interest to specialists in Latin American literature and also to those with an interest in Paris as a cultural phenomenon.
