Описание: In this masterly, deeply personal, and provocative book, the internationally renowned Mexican writer Carlos Fuentes, whose work has been called "a combination of Poe, Baudelaire, and Isak Dinesen" (Newsweek), steps back to survey the wellsprings of art and ideology, the events that have shaped our time, and his extraordinary life and fiercest passions. Arranged alphabetically from "Amore" to "Zurich," This I Believe takes us on a marvelous inner journey with a great writer. Fuentes ranges wide, from contradictions inherent in Latin American culture and politics to his long friendship with director Luis Bunuel. Along the way, we find reflection on the mixed curse and blessing of globalization; memories of a sexual initiation in Zurich; a fond tracing of a family tree heavy with poets, dreamers, and diplomats; evocations of the streets, cafes, and bedrooms of Washington, Paris, Santiago de Chile, Cambridge, Oaxaca, and New York; and a celebration of literary heroes including Balzac, Cervantes, Faulkner, Kafka, and Shakespeare. Throughout, Fuentes captivates with the power of his intellect and his prose. Here, too, are vivid, often heartbreaking glimpses into his personal life. "Silvia" is a powerful love letter to his beloved wife. In "Children," Fuentes recalls the births of his daughters and the tragic death of his son; in "Cinema" he relives the magic of films such as Citizen Kane and The Wizard of Oz. Further extending his reach, he examines the collision between history and contemporary life in "Civil Society," "Left," and "Revolution." And he poignantly addresses the experiences we all hold in common as he grapples with beauty, death, freedom, God, and sex. By turns provocative and intimate, partisan and universal, this book is a brilliant summation of an international literary career. Revisiting the influences, commitments, readings, and insights of a lifetime, Fuentes has fashioned a magnificently coherent statement of his view of the world, reminding us once again why reading Fuentes is "like standing beneath the dome of the Sistine Chapel. . . . The breadth and enormity of this accomplishment is breathtaking" (The Denver Post). From the Hardcover edition.

Описание: As the novel opens, Artemio Cruz, the all-powerful newspaper magnate and land baron, lies confined to his bed and, in dreamlike flashes, recalls the pivotal episodes of his life. Carlos Fuentes manipulates the ensuing kaleidoscope of images with dazzling inventiveness, layering memory upon memory, from Cruz’s heroic campaigns during the Mexican Revolution, through his relentless climb from poverty to wealth, to his uneasy death. Perhaps Fuentes’s masterpiece, "The Death of Artemio Cruz "is a haunting voyage into the soul of modern Mexico.

Описание: In these spectacular vignettes, the internationally acclaimed author Carlos Fuentes explores Tolstoy's classic observation that "happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." In "A Family Like Any Other," each member of the Pag n family lives in isolation, despite sharing a tiny house. In "The Mariachi's Mother," the limitless devotion of a woman is revealed as she secretly tends to her estranged son's wounds. "Sweethearts" reunites old lovers unexpectedly and opens up the possibilities for other lives and other loves. These are just a few of the remarkable stories in Happy Families, but they all inhabit Fuentes's trademark Mexico, where modern obsessions bump up against those of the mythic past-and the result is a triumphant display of the many ways we reach out to one another and find salvation through irrepressible acts of love.

Описание: Carlos Fuentes's new masterpiece, Destiny and Desire, is a story about fate, will, wealth, crime, and power in contemporary Mexico City. A child without a past, Josu? meets his match in Jeric?, also an orphan. Their innate philosophical curiosity sets them apart from their schoolmates, and they become inseparable. After college, Josu? takes a job with Mexico's most powerful businessman, and Jeric? with the country's president. As a complex net of power, crime, and corruption tightens around them, Josu? discovers that he and Jeric? are not as alike as it once seemed, and that the free will the two friends thought they possessed was an illusion. A darkly mysterious novel about two young men, and Mexico past and present--from its ancient mythologies to the corruption of the twentieth century--Destiny and Desire is an extraordinary work by one of the world's greatest living writers.
