Leaving Tabasco by Carmen Boullosa( Book )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Carmen Boullosa is one of Mexico's most acclaimed writers, and Leaving Tabasco tells of the coming-of-age of Delmira Ulloa, raised in an all-female home in Agustini, in the Mexican province of Tabasco. Agustini is not an ordinary village--from seeing her grandmother float above the bed while she sleeps, from purchasing torrential rains at a travelling fair during the dry season, to watching the family's elderly serving woman develop stigmata and become canonized as a saint--the world in which Delmire grows up knows no border between fantasy and reality

Es difícil encontrar en la literatura mexicana contemporánea una personalidad tan brillante y compleja como la de Carmen Boullosa. Poeta, dramaturga y novelista, Carmen Boullosa (ciudad de México, 1954) nos ofrece en cada uno de sus libros la certidumbre de leer al autor de un espacio literario autónomo y radical. El universo de Carmen Boullosa no forma parte cabal de nuestra tradición. El suyo es un mundo excéntrico y despiadado donde la imaginación funciona a través de reglas tan disparatadas como sutiles
Cleopatra dismounts : a novel by Carmen Boullosa( Book )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cleopatra Dismounts is an imagined life of the Egyptian queen, called Queen of Kings by her subjects and widely said to be the incarnation of the goddess Isis. In the opening section, with Marc Antony dying in her arms, Cleopatra bewails the ignominious end to her larger-than-life career through the political world of ancient Egypt, Greece, and the Mediterranean. But is this really the true Cleopatra? Through the intervention of Cleoptra's scribe and informer. Diomedes, Boullosa creates two previous Cleopatras, and in effect two deliriously wild other lives for the young monarch - a girl escaping the intrigues of royal society, fleeing in the back of a horsecart to Ascalon, to disguise herself and take up residence with a band of pirates; and the young queen who is carried across the sea on the back of a magical bull, to live among the Amazons and become part of their society, learning their battle techniques and stories of love. In each adventure, Cleopatra reveals the roots of her genius by losing herself in these different worlds - male, female, high, low, and of many cultures - and absorbing the advantages and pitfalls of their views of the world."--BOOK JACKET
