Reviews

"Four years in the making, Valerie Miles, co-founder of Granta, curates an impressive twenty-eight author strong anthology of Spanish Language fiction featuring pieces from literary heavyweights like Javier Marias, Antonio Munoz Molina, Enrique Vila-Matas, and Mario Vargas Llosa alongside some lesser known (but equally as important) names. . . . Beautifully packaged and well laid out, this collection is a definite must-have for lovers of contemporary Spanish language fiction."--Typographical Era

"That the Spanish language gave voice to the likes of Cervantes, Borges, García Márquez, and so many other greats of literary fiction is a fact not unlike poetry's affinity for Russian. Lingua España is to daring tales of adventure and magical realism what sex is to erotica. This outrageously valuable project asked twenty-eight Spanish-language heavyweights of the last half of the twentieth century to choose a favorite piece of their own work, accompanied by some personal words of commentary and reflection."--Valerie Miles, Foreward Reviews

." . . [T]his was a fascinating overview of contemporary Spanish language fiction and a good introduction to many new authors. There is something here for readers of almost every literary taste . . ."--The Mantle
