Reviews

"Drawing expertly on five centuries of the cultural history of Europe and the Americas, Fuentes seeks to capture the spirit of the new, vibrant, and enduring civilization [in the New World] that began in Spain." The Los Angeles Times

"With his considerable gifts as a narrator, Fuentes captures the sweep and drama of hispanic history . . . forceful and beautifully written." The New York Times

"His style is clear, intellectually charged, and powerfully argued, invigorated by the novelist's sense of irony, paradox, and sensuality." The Washington Post
