"Excellent, highly colloquial translation of Arráncame la vida (see HLAS 48:5193), set in post-revolutionary Mexico. Peden has created a sparkling, irreverent Catalina, Mastretta's first-person protagonist who narrates her coming of age through a marriage to a retired general much older than herself. No background information. For historical introduction, see Ann Wright's translation of this novel, Mexican bolero (HLAS 54:5031)"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
Women with big eyes by Ángeles Mastretta( Book )
129 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A number-one international bestseller, Women with Big Eyes is Mexican novelist Angeles Mastretta's most widely read work, now available for the first time in an English translation. Each of the stories in this volume reveals a different woman, yet they are all linked by a single thread: the revelation that women share an unnamed force, whether it comes in the form of iron resolve, flaming passion, or simply the knowing and mystical ways to nurture a soul." "Meet the outrageous Aunt Leonor, who denies herself the forbidden fruit of love until almost too late; mysterious Aunt Cristina, whose famed marriage is rumored to be nothing more than fable; radiant Aunt Valeria, whose secret happiness is to "close your eyes and make of your husband whatever most appeals to you"; and sage Aunt Ofelia, a woman who never cries. Run off to the sea with stubborn Aunt Natalia, smuggle wine with scheming Aunt Elena, or escape a kidnapping with cheeky Aunt Elvira." "Mastretta's women are vibrant, sly, wise, earthy, and full of life, with stories that mesmerize. From these pages, they look back at you, into you, each representing an aspect of what it means to be a woman with big eyes, able to see the world for what it is, and wink at it, and to make an uncompromising life within it."--BOOK JACKET
