Pressestimmen"Original, witty and passionate, Body of Writing is sure to interest Hispanists and non-Hispanists alike. I can think of few Latin Americanists capable of producing readings as energetic and elegant as Prieto's."--Gustavo Perez Firmat, author of Next Year in Cuba and Life on the Hyphen "A most significant contribution to Spanish American literary criticism. Prieto is a gifted scholar with an unusual talent for reading texts."--William Luis, author of Dance Between Two Cultures: Latino Caribbean Literature Written in the United States "Body of Writing is the most advanced piece of criticism on Latin American literature available. Prieto's unique mixture of theoretical sophistication with elegance of mind and style makes him soar above today's cacophonous cackle.
