From the Publisher

John King, one of the most lucid and knowledgeable critics of Latin American literature, explores the significance of Plural . Edited by Octavio Paz, the journal played a transformative role in ushering modern culture into the Spanish language.King's book is indispensable. - Mario Vargas Llosa, author of Conversation in the Cathedral "John King has done with Plural what he did so brilliantly with Argentina's Sur : this is a superb critical analysis, a treasure trove of insights and new information from the leading expert in the field." - Edwin Williamson, King Alfonso XIII Professor of Spanish, University of Oxford
