Mexico has long been the top travel destination for Americans. But until now, there has not been such a panoramic vision of offered by some of Mexico's finest contemporary writers of fiction and literary prose. Here are writings -- many translated for the first time -- that bring you to the people of the beaches, the deserts, jungles, snow-capped mountains, and megacities. The voices are rich and diverse, the stories enthralling and strange. These writings shatter stereotypes as they provide a rollicking journey from the Pacific to the Gulf, from Yucatan to the U.S.-Mexico border, from humble ranchos to a fabulous mountaintop castle. Contributors include Daniel Reveles, Carlos Fuentes, Ines Arredondo, Jesus Gardea, Elizondo Elizondo, Agustin Cadena, C. M. Mayo, Carlos Monsivais, Juan Villoro, Guadalupe Loaeza, Fernando del Paso, Monica Lavin, Pedro Angel Palou, Angeles Mastretta, Raul Mejia, Martha Cerda, Araceli Ardon, Bruno Estanol, Ilan Stavans, Raymundo Hernandez-Gil, Julieta Campos, Alberto Ruy Sanchez, Rosario Castellanos, and Laura Esquivel.
