This unique reader offers an engaging collection of essays that highlight the diversity of Latin America's cultural expressions from independence to the present. Exploring such themes and events as funerals, dance and music, letters and literature, spectacles and monuments, and world's fairs and food, a group of leading historians examines the ways that a wide range of individuals with copious, at times contradictory, motives attempted to forge identity, turn the world upside down, mock their betters, forget their troubles through dance, express love in letters, and altogether enjoy life. The authors analyze case studies from Argentina, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, and Trinidad-Tobago, tracing as well how their examples resonate in the rest of the region. They show how people could and did find opportunities to escape, if only occasionally, their daily drudgery, making lives for themselves of greater variety than the constant quest for dominance, drive for profits, orknee-jerk resistance to the social or economic order so often described in cultural studies. Instead, this rich text introduces the complexity of motives behind and the diversity of expressions of popular culture in Latin America.

This book details many aspects of Latin American culture as experienced by millions of people living in Central and South America. The author argues that despite early and considerable European influences on the region, indigenous Latin American traditions still characterize much of the social and artistic heritage of the Latin American countries. Several chapters provide detailed accounts of daily life, including descriptions of contemporary dress, mealtime traditions, transportation, and traditional ways of conducting business. Other chapters focus on the cultural significance of the popular music, art, and literature prevalent in each Latin American country.

Claudio ist Lektor in einem Verlag und lebt seit vielen Jahren in New York, nachdem ihn der tragische Verlust seiner ersten großen Liebe aus seiner Heimatstadt Havanna vertrieben hat. Cecilia studiert in Paris. Seit ihrer Kindheit in Mexiko hat sie ein besonderes Faible für Friedhöfe und liebt es, zwischen den Gräbern des Père-Lachaise spazieren zu gehen. Als Claudio und Cecilia sich über gemeinsame Freunde in Paris kennenlernen, verlieben sie sich ineinander, obwohl sie beide in andere Beziehungen verwickelt sind. Über die Distanz hinweg tauschen sie E-Mails, Gedanken, selbst zusammengestellte Musikcompilations aus. Doch als Cecilia nach New York fliegt, um Claudio zu besuchen, entwickelt sich ihre Beziehung ganz anders als erwartet ... Auf intensive, manchmal humorvolle, manchmal beklemmende Weise beleuchtet Guadalupe Nettel die vorsichtige Annäherung ihrer Protagonisten und erschafft so ein tiefschürfendes Bild zweier Menschen, die sich nach Nähe sehnen, doch Schwierigkeiten haben, sich aufeinander einzulassen. Ein berührender Roman über die heilende Kraft der Liebe und die Chancen, die Enttäuschungen für die eigene Liebesfähigkeit sein können.
