Hello friends, i want to ask about how much do you enjoy the latinoamerican boom literature.
I mean, works from authors like Fernando del Paso, Carlos Fuentes, Gabriel García Márquez,
Julio Cortázar, Mario Vargas Llosa, Juan Rulfo, Mario Benedetti, or José Lezama Lima.
Those works, are amazing because they do a vanguardist (avant-garde), experimental books like Rayuela, One hundred years of solitude, Pedro Páramo, José Trigo and anothers.

I honestly find a lot of it shit. Cortazar imo wrote a lot of junk that has no substance at all, still some of his short stories are GOAT
I prefer older guys like Borges, Lugones, Dario.
t. Latin american

I'm reminded of William Gass's review of Hopscotch

Julio Cortázar’s Hopscotch

Of the astonishing Latin American writers, I am including only a few in my fifty, simply because only these few jarred as much my writing hand. But the work of Fuentes, Paz, Neruda, Carpentier, Vallejo, Rulfo, Puig, Donoso, Cabrera Infante, Sarduy, Sábato, García Márquez, Vargas Llosa, and so on, should not be in any sense skimped or neglected. These writers now own the novel. We others, who try our hand at it from time to time, we merely rent. And Hopscotch is one reason for the preeminence of the Spanish language in contemporary literature. Rich, inventive, sprawling, intelligent … I halt on this word, not one I should assign as a special quality to many writers. Joyce, for instance, picks up ideas the way a jackdaw steals buttons off of hanging wash—because they are bright—and he carries them back to his nest, another shiny trophy. But he does not know the inside of any of them. He knows the brutalities of theology, the beauty of its pageantry, the fearfulness of its fanaticism, but not its internal intellectual power. But so many of the great Latins do. They are smart. Many have been diplomats. They are smooth. They have seen their countries ravaged by carpetbaggers and impoverished by homegrown dictators. They are really pissed off.
