Drawing upon his own past as well as the history of Latin America, Chilean novelist and journalist Jorge Edwards shares unique perspectives forged at the crossroads of literature and social commentary. Edwards describes his secretive and book-filled childhood, his overbearing father, his admiration for the Spanish writer Miguel de Unamuno, and his equal reverence for Pablo Neruda-while rejecting the latter's fondness for Stalinist thought and dismissing Marxism for its "bad analysis of the future." The author also sheds light on the literary turmoil surrounding Persona Non Grata, his memoir about the Castro regime.
