This landmark collection rescues the voices of great women of Latin American letters, many of them distinguished in their own countries but largely unrecognized abroad. The stories of Landscapes of a New Land show the wide range of themes, images, and languages encountered in the new territories of the Latin American narrative written by women.
The anthology contains over twenty stores from ten countries. The themes of the stories are as eclectic as the natures of these women, ranging from stories exploring love and its mysteries to stories reflecting social/political concerns and reactions to authoritarian and repressive powers and to the magic-real stories which are characteristic of contemporary Latin American fiction.
