The House of Memory

Stories by Jewish Women Writers of Latin America
Edited by Marjorie Agosin & Elizabeth Rosa Horan

Translated by Elizabeth Rosa Horan

For the first time, the work of contemporary Jewish women writers from throughout Latin America is gathered together in one captivating collection. These 22 stories are by such internationally acclaimed writers as Brazilian Clarice Lispector and Mexican Margo Glantz, along with many writers here introduced to English-speaking readers.

"All of these texts are marvelous, eloquent, and finely written, and Agosín's selection is faultless. The translations supervised by Elizabeth Rosa Horan are uniformly professional and articulate. In sum, this is an outstanding contribution to Latin American Jewish studies."

—David William Foster, Regents' Professor of Spanish, interdisciplinary humanities, and women's studies, Arizona State University

"Marjorie Agosín has done a magnificent job in assembling such fine literature and in writing a valuable introduction that puts these Jewish women writers into the broader Latin American context. The House Of Memory is an astonishing and indispensable book."

—David Unger, City College of New York, poet and translator
