Mexico: A Traveler's Literary Companion
Here is the lovely cover (cover painting by Mexican artist Elena Climent). This is not a guidebook, but a collection of Mexican fiction and literary prose--- including Carlos Fuentes, Angeles Mastretta, Laura Esquivel, Rosario Castellanos, Carlos Monsivais, Ricardo Elizondo Elizondo, Ilan Stavans, and many more. I'm the editor and I translated several of the pieces, but there are many other translators who contributed beautiful work for this volume, among them, Geoff Hargreaves, Daniel Shapiro, Mark Schafer, Amy Schildhouse Greenberg, Harry Morales, and many others.
