What People are Saying About This

Elizabeth A. Marchant

"Meyer and Horan have done extraordinary and valuable work in collecting and editing the letters of Victoria Ocampo and Gabriela Mistral in This America of Ours. . . . Ocampo and Mistral’s exchanges often reveal their differing approaches to literature, politics, and feminism and, as such, provide an example of the richness and variety of women’s intellectual engagement in Latin America."
