"Editors Fares and Hermann, both Spanish professors, provide a lucid introuduction to Argentine politics and history in this century - a time of upheaval accompanied by authoritarianism, censorship, and violence. These female voices offer another viewpoint on that upheaval. . . . Many stories involve real of symbplic immigration and emigration in the hope of finding identity. In the interviews, Jorge Luis Borges is often cited as an inspiration - which is evident in these complex, imaginative works."
"Unique in both the breadth of its coverage . . . and in its approach toward gender and history in the works of these writers. . . . An extremely valuable portrait of the strength and talent of these contemporary authors." -- Choice
