Current Book - March 2015

  • The Death of Artemio Cruz
    by Carlos Fuentes.
    Hosted by: Zephyr Frank

    "I chose this book because it has a great deal of meaning to me personally-- it was the first really great work of modern Latin American literature that I read as a student. I have used it in courses here at Stanford and each time I go back to teaching it I feel like I learn something new and gain new perspective on Mexican history and literature-- its just an inexhaustible source of interest."

    Zephyr Frank, associate professor of Latin American history and director of Stanford's Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis and Spatial History Project
