Prospero's Mirror

A Translators' Portfolio of Latin American Short Fiction

Sixteen master translators have chosen their favorite stories from Latin America. Writers and translators include Edith Grossman, Helen R. Lane, Augusto Monterroso, Gregory Rabassa, Alfonso Reyes, Hardie St. Martin, and Luisa Valenzuela. An introductory essay on translation by Ilan Stavans and an epilogue by Margaret Sayers Peden provide entertaining food for thought.
