Index to Translated Short Fiction by Latin American Women in English Language Anthologies

Synopsis

During the past 10 years, the situation of women writers in Latin America has dramatically changed as has the interest the reading public has shown in their work. In the United States, the rise of women's studies programs has fostered a heightened awareness of literature written by women. Publishers have noted the growing significance of Latin American women writers and have responded by increasing the availability of the work of these women. Thus many anthologies now include English translations of Latin American short fiction written by women. This reference book provides a full listing of these anthologies and the works contained in them.
