"There never really was a women's literature, strictly speaking, in Latin America. One can say, however, that women scattered across the continent entered the world of letters almost simultaneously during the romantic period."-from the introduction by Celia Correas de Zapata
If you're like me, you're like, "Hey, I should read more Latin American women writers!" Well, this book is a godsend. Edited by Celia Correas de Zapata and introduced by Isabel Allende, who is also featured, this is an excellent introduction to the short stories of women writers, with authors from Chile, Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Ecuador among the countries represented. After reading this, I'd suggest the novels "The House of Spirits," "Like Water for Chocolate," and "In the Time of the Butterflies."
