    One thought on “The Future Is Not Ours: New Latin American Fiction”

    1. the future is not ours collects twenty-three short stories from writers throughout latin america, all of whom were born in the decade between 1970 and 1980. begun initially as a "free electronic anthology" in 2007 (featuring some sixty-three authors: el futuro no es nuestro), a shorter, alternate version with different stories found its way into print two years later and was subsequently published on three continents. this english edition of the future is not ours offers nineteen of the twenty s [...]

    2. This anthology of current Latin American authors is, like most anthologies, something of a mixed bag. And, since like a lot of anthologies, this took me quite a while to get through, especially since the stories are organized alphabetically by author's country, so there isn't much of a flow between stories. Most of my favorite stories were by authors I knew about (Juan Gabriel Vasquez and Daniel Alarcon, for example), but there were also some surprises, such as the delightfully strange stories " [...]

    3. Buena recopilación de narrativa latinoamericana, voces disparejas, algunos temas recurrentes, visiones distintas.-"Se dice que los meridianos son líneas que dividen al mundo por mitades, decía Tano y Blanquita Calzolari asentía. Se dice que las dos mitades son iguales y la línea que hace la división es una línea finita, finita, que no se puede ver, decía Tano y Blanquita Calzolari asentía. Se dice que los paralelos son las mismas líneas pero puestas al revés. Se dice que si se cambia [...]

    4. Según explica en su prólogo el compilador, el escritor peruano Diego Trelles Paz, "el cinismo, la indiferencia y el individualismo están presentes, directa u oblicuamente, en mucha de la producción de estos autores" Para Trelles Paz los "motivos medulares" de estos cuentos y de la tradición literaria latinoamericana son la sexualidad y "las diferentes manifestaciones de la violencia, tanto en las relaciones interpersonales como a partir del difícil proceso de convivencia cultural, social y [...]

    5. Diego Trelles ha hecho un trabajo digno de elogiar al juntar en un solo libro, piezas maravillosas de lo que se está produciendo por autores nacidos en este lado , a veces olvidado, del mundo. Cuentos que van de lo terrorífico a lo sexual, de lo grotesco a lo lírico,donde la violencia y la apatía parecen impregnadas en nuestra naturaleza, pero que situaciones fantásticas terminan por desmontar y hacen vibrar al lector. Disfruté descubriendo a grandes valores como Samanta Schweblin, Zambra, [...]

    6. A rather strange collection of short stories. It's hit and miss - while many of the stories are excellent (Fish Spine was my particular favourite, succinct and lyrical and Shipwrecked on Naxos - bizarre and intimate), there are some stinkers as well (Chicken Soup seems like it could have been written by a GCSE student and Hypothetically didn't work for me at all). Definitely a good introduction to young Latin American writers, and I enjoyed how so many of the stories deal with challenging themes [...]

    7. DISCLAIMER: I am the publisher of the book and thus spent approximately two years reading and editing and working on it. So take my review with a grain of salt, or the understanding that I am deeply invested in this text and know it quite well. Also, I would really appreciate it if you would purchase this book, since it would benefit Open Letter directly.

    8. Muy buena, ésta antología! Hay un poco de todo y parece pues ser la temática, la humanidad latinoamericana. Este libro me recuerda de los importantes aportes de la narrativa latinoamericana a la literatura universal. Si bien hay cuentos mejores que otros (para todos los gustos y colores.), creo que es una antología que merece respeto.

    9. "The strength of The Future Is Not Ours rests primarily on the merits of its most accomplished stories." - Ryan Long, University of OklahomaThis book was reviewed in the January 2013 issue of World Literature Today. Read the full review by visiting our website: bit/VdakQ8

    10. First Read Win.This has twenty-three short stories gathered into one book. So if you don't like one story then there are twenty-two more to try out. I didn't love every story but I did like/love most of them. Good book.

    11. Variopinta colección que ilustra los síntomas narrativos de escritores contemporáneos de Latinoamérica. El mejor cuento es "Los curiosos" de Juan Gabriel Vásquez y el más provocador, "Hojas de afeitar", de Lina Meruane.
