The death of Artemio Cruz by Carlos Fuentes( Book )
452 editions published between 1952 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 6,092 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 scene is Guanajuato, a provincial capital in Central Mexico, once one of the world's richest mining centers. The Ceballos family has been reinstated to power, and adolescent Jaime Ceballos, its only heir, is torn between the practical reality of his family's life and the idealism of his youth and his Catholic education. His father is a good man but weak; his uncle is powerful, yet his actions are inconsistent with his professed beliefs. Jaime's struggle to emerge as a man with a "good conscience" forms the theme of the book: can a rebel correct the evils of an established system and at the same time retain the integrity of his principles?

The eagle's throne : a novel by Carlos Fuentes( Book )

Mexico in the year 2020. A country without power, literally - no phone, no fax, no email, no sattelite communicaton - because the president, unaccountably putting principle before realpolitik, has offended his northern neighbour, by keeping the price of Mexican oil high and demanding the removal of US troops from Columbia. And in these days, thanks to the greed and incompetence of his predecessors, the US just happens to supply his country's electricity through a Latin America friendly corporation in Miami and has turned off the supply. In a country where no one ever puts anything in writing, letters become the only way to communicate. Overnight, the true motives, feelings and private lives of the politicians lie suddenly and brutally exposed. Especially now that everyone knows the only important political question of the day is: Who will be the next president, the next to ascend the eagle's throne?

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. Branly's story is of a family named Heredia: Hugo, a noted Mexican archaeologist, and his young son, Victor, whom Branly met in Cuernavaca and who became his house guest in Paris. There they are gradually drawn into a mysterious connection with the French Victor Heredia and his son, known as Andre. There is a hard-edged emphasis on the theme of relations between the Old World and the New, as Branly's twilit, Proustian existence is invaded and overcome by the hot, chaotic, and baroque proliferation of the Caribbean jungle

The diary of Frida Kahlo : an intimate self-portrait by Frida Kahlo( Book )
20 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,750 libraries worldwide
This volume relates Mexican painter Frida Kahlo's (1919- 1954) images of pain, loss, mutilation and transcendence to Mexico's historic cycles of revolution and reaction. This work reproduces her personal journal that she kept during the last 10 years of her life -- handwritten, colored-ink entries and accompanying self-portraits, sketches, doodles and paintings, which fuse surrealism, pre-Columbian gods and myths, biomorphic forms, animal-human hybrids, archetypal symbols. Readers get a taste of Kahlo's preoccupation with death, brought on by declining health, isolation and repeated surgical operations resulting from the bus accident that severely damaged her spine, pelvic bones, right leg and right foot at the age of 18. The author intends to place the journal in the context of the painter's shattered life. Sprinkled with irony, black humor, even joy, and augmented with translations of the diary entries plus commentaries and photographs, this work is a testament to Kahlo's resilience and courage

This I believe : an A to Z of a life by Carlos Fuentes( Book )
58 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 675 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: In this masterly, deeply personal, and provocative book, the internationally renowned Mexican writer Carlos Fuentes, whose work has been called "a combination of Poe, Baudelaire, and Isak Dinesen" (Newsweek), steps back to survey the wellsprings of art and ideology, the events that have shaped our time, and his extraordinary life and fiercest passions. Arranged alphabetically from "Amore" to "Zurich," This I Believe takes us on a marvelous inner journey with a great writer. Fuentes ranges wide, from contradictions inherent in Latin American culture and politics to his long friendship with director Luis Bunuel. Along the way, we find reflection on the mixed curse and blessing of globalization; memories of a sexual initiation in Zurich; a fond tracing of a family tree heavy with poets, dreamers, and diplomats; evocations of the streets, cafes, and bedrooms of Washington, Paris, Santiago de Chile, Cambridge, Oaxaca, and New York; and a celebration of literary heroes including Balzac, Cervantes, Faulkner, Kafka, and Shakespeare. Throughout, Fuentes captivates with the power of his intellect and his prose. Here, too, are vivid, often heartbreaking glimpses into his personal life. "Silvia" is a powerful love letter to his beloved wife. In "Children," Fuentes recalls the births of his daughters and the tragic death of his son; in "Cinema" he relives the magic of films such as Citizen Kane and The Wizard of Oz. Further extending his reach, he examines the collision between history and contemporary life in "Civil Society," "Left," and "Revolution." And he poignantly addresses the experiences we all hold in common as he grapples with beauty, death, freedom, God, and sex. By turns provocative and intimate, partisan and universal, this book is a brilliant summation of an international literary career. Revisiting the influences, commitments, readings, and insights of a lifetime, Fuentes has fashioned a magnificently coherent statement of his view of the world, reminding us once again why reading Fuentes is "like standing beneath the dome of the Sistine Chapel."

Federico en su balcón by Carlos Fuentes( Book )
13 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in Spanish and Polish and held by 102 libraries worldwide
Desde su balcón en el Hotel Metropol, Federico Nietzsche, que regresa a una edad moderna con sus viejas dudas y culpas, interroga a Federico Nietzsche en el otro balcón. Carlos Fuentes, desde el suyo, interroga a Carlos Fuentes que se asoma al otro. Entre ambos hay espejos que los reflejan y reflejan a las edades. Carlos Nietzsche y Federico Fuentes conversan sobre el poder, el amor y la justicia mientras van dando entrada a estrafalarios y paradigmaticos personajes al escenario de una revolución donde caerán cabezas. Así es la historia de la ambicíon humana, de la intriga por el poder, del delirio que lleva al crimen, de la bastardía de la traición, porque el poder implica hilos manejados tras bambalinas, dominio sobre el otro. La gloria ha llegado, la gloria se ha ido. Volverán los de antes a levantarles monumentos a los de después, envolviendo a los sacrificados en un sudario de palabras. Y cuando Federico y su vecino cierren las puertas de sus balcones, todo volverá a empezar."
