"...a wide-ranging and well-researched study of gender politics in the Latin American 'new' novel. By comparing and contrasting Brazilian and Spanish American texts, the book produces many original insights into the differences among national cultures." - Darlene J. Sadlier; "...a welcome contribution to the study of Latin American literatures, providing a refreshing theoretical point of view through the use of Jung's and Campbell's works, and emphasizing the importance of the Brazilian literary tradition, which in the past has been wrongly overlooked." - Chasqui"
