A comprehensive survey of Spanish American fiction as it has eveolved through successive phases.
From the PublisherA comprehensive and erudite survey of the field... In the two chapters devoted to (the Boom) we are treated to excellent, insightful readings... A valuable work of reference. TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT (Anne McLean) An ambitious book of exceptional significance.... Delivers more than its title may promise. On the one hand, true to its encyclopaedic form, the Companion meets the challenge of painting a sweeping panorama of two centuries of Spanish American narrative... On the other hand, Shaw's opus succeeds, almost miraculously, in transcending its monumental format by avoiding over-generalisation... Shaw never fails to provide his readers with a map and compass as he guides them through the forking paths of contemporary Spanish American narrative. MLR
