about this book

The fourth book in the Modern Library’s Paris Review Writers at Work series, Latin American Writers at Work is a collection of interviews with some of the most important and acclaimed Latin American writers of our time. The text of these fascinating conversations were compiled from the annals of The Paris Review and include a new Introduction by Nobel Prize—winning author Derek Walcott.

“What these interviews achieve in their essential courtesy is the hallowing of the craft by the writers whatever their stupid quarrels, whatever their superficial cynicisms. It is this secular sacredness that, hovering on the verge of translation, of being translated myself, made me grateful for the echo of the names Cortázar, Fuentes, Paz, García Márquez, in the house in Guadalajara where the ferocity of the flowers was an ignorance that these voices dispel.” —from the Introduction by Derek Walcott
