Rather than research and make my reading list for Latin America, I thought I would just ask for recommendations. What have you read set in Central or South America that you would read again? Post your recommendation and I’ll add it to the list.
I haven’t read many books set in Latin America, but here is what I’ve read or I’m currently reading:
- Leaving Tabasco by Carmen Boullosa (currently reading while in Mexico)
- One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriela Garcia Marquez
- Love in the Time of Colera by Gabriela Garcia Marquez
I’m excited to read about:
In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez!
Thanks, Catherine! I’ll add it to my list.
One of my favorite Latin American authors is Paulo Coelho. He is from Brazil and wrote the Alchemist and Eleven Minutes.
A friend just recommended the Alchemist. I’ll definitely check it out. Thanks, Nicole!
I enjoyed Isabel Allende’s “Of Love and Shadows”.
I haven’t heard of that one before. I’ll definitely check it out and add it to the list. Thanks so much, Maria!
Some great Argentine writers are Borges and Cortazar (maybe start with Cortazar’s short stories rather than his novels if you aren’t familiar with his writing).
Love your photos 🙂
Thanks so much, Letizia! I thought you might know some good ones. I’ll definitely check out some of their books/short stories and add some to the list.
