The death of Artemio Cruz by Carlos Fuentes( Book )
48 editions published between 1962 and 2014 in English and held by 2,700 libraries worldwide
An imaginative portrait of an unscrupulous individual, the story also serves as commentary on Mexican society, most notably on the abuse of power--a theme that runs throughout Fuentes' work. As the novel opens, Artemio Cruz, former revolutionary turned capitalist, lies on his deathbed. He drifts in and out of consciousness, and when he is conscious his mind wanders between past and present. The story reveals that Cruz became rich through treachery, bribery, corruption, and ruthlessness. As a young man he had been full of revolutionary ideals. Acts committed as a means of self-preservation soon developed into a way of life based on opportunism. A fully realized character, Cruz can also be seen as a symbol of Mexico's quest for wealth at the expense of moral values

The crystal frontier : a novel in nine stories by Carlos Fuentes( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 1,282 libraries worldwide
The nine stories comprising this novel all concern people who in one way or another have had something to do with, or still are part of, the family of a powerful oligarch of northern Mexico with manifold connections to the United States. Each story concerns a Mexican-American encounter--sometimes hilarious, often tragic, frequently ambivalent, inevitably poignant--and each unique drama in its own way epitomizes some striking contrast along the invisible, reflective, dangerous frontier that divides the American-Mexican world. Beyond the emblematic power of Mr. Fuentes's exuberant fiction to make us think about the political and cultural themes which affect and distort that double world, there is the sheer human diversity of life on "crystal frontier." These stories pulse with vivid experience--of love in its many guises, of loneliness, of youth and age, of heartbreak and redemption.--From publisher description

Translated by Margaret Sayers Peden During a long, lingering lunch at the Automobile Club de France, the elderly Comte de Branly tells a story to a friend, unnamed until the closing pages, who is in fact the first-person narrator of the novel.

There they are gradually drawn into a mysterious connection with the French Victor Heredia and his son, known as Andre.
