Reviews

“A fine collection as well selected and edited as this one serves as an example of the stylistic and artistic diversity of the new fiction produced by an outstanding generation of Argentine women writers. For their original and impeccable quality, the selected works form a valuable volume which will be of interest to students and scholars interested in feminist, multicultural and gender studies. Sally Webb Thornton’s translations demonstrate a superb skill and command of both English and Spanish.” – Maria Claude Andre
