Looking for History
Alma Guillermoprieto
Price: $ 13

In the tradition of Joan Didion, V. S. Naipaul, and Ryzsard Kapucinski comes a collection of essays and reportage by Alma Guillermoprieto, perhaps the most highly regarded writer on Latin America.

Guillermoprieto, who contributes regularly to The New Yorker and The New York Review of Books, explores the three Latin American countries most important to America right now: Cuba, Mexico, and Colombia. Only Guillermoprieto can write with such acumen and sympathy about statesmen and campesinos, leftist revolutionaries and right-wing militias, and political figures from Fidel Castro to Vicente Fox. Combining the passion and deep knowledge of an insider with the detachment of a seasoned veteran, Looking For History offers a portrait of this beguiling and crucial part of the world¿a portrait unrivaled in its knowledge, analysis, and literary craftsmanship.

¿A master.... The countries of Latin America now have their Orwell.¿¿David Remnick

¿Brilliant...objective journalism.¿¿Voice Literary Supplement

¿Her fearless reporting, as well as her eloquent descriptions and character sketches, hold the reader¿s attention rapt.¿¿The Wall Street Journal
