    Reviews & endorsements

    'No corner of the continent remains untouched in the Cambridge Companion…This much needed book also illuminates the literary contribution to the Spanish-speaking nations of the western hemisphere and Portuguese-speaking Brazil, while offering a broad overview of the novel's history and a sense of its heterogeneity." -- Times Literary Supplement
