Description: Dr. Jiménez translated the short story "Fata Morgana" by Bruno Estañol for this exciting anthology of Mexican fiction. “Mexico has long been the top travel destination for Americans. But until now, there has not been such a panoramic vision of Mexico offered by some of Mexico’s finest contemporary writers of fiction and literary prose. Here are writings—many translated for the first time—that bring you to the people of the beaches, the deserts, jungles, snow-capped mountains, and megacities. […] Contributors include rising stars as well as many of Mexico’s best-known literary writers, including Carlos Fuentes, Ángeles Mastretta, Laura Esquivel, Alberto Ruy Sánchez, Ilan Stavans, and Juan Villoro.” -Cited from the back cover.
