Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Talking with Mexican writer and critic Margo Glantz, Magdalena Garcia Pinto describes the interview process as "a dialogue with your mirror" (117). The exchanges she has with ten Latin American women are less transparent reflections of these writers, however, than they are guided conversations about their development as writers and their views about the distinctiveness of female literature. As a general introduction to Latin American women writers, Garcia Pinto's interviews do not provide the reader with a coherent or thorough view of how these women fit into (or break free from) Latin American literary movements or feminine/feminist traditions; rather, the volume is a collection of facts and insights about a heterogeneous group of women from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Uruguay.
