Item description for La frontera de cristal/ The Crystal Frontier (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura)) (Spanish Edition) by Carlos Fuentes...
Using an imaginary glass wall, Carlos Fuentes creates a lens through which he examines the violence, discrimination and racism suffered by Mexican immigrants crossing the border into the US in a quest for a better life. In these nine stories that deal with the separation between Mexico and the Unites States, Fuentes is able to find humor even amongst the tumbling ruins of an immigrant's dream.

Reviews - What do customers think about La frontera de cristal/ The Crystal Frontier (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura)) (Spanish Edition)?
Excelente estudio sobre la frontera Jul 9, 2007
No califica solamente como un libro sobre la frontera, sino como LITERATURA. Aun asi, es facil de leer, no como otras obras de Fuentes. Provocadora. Historia (aun que no siempre fiel a la verdad) de la frontera y la repeticion de la historia a traves de los siglos. Personalidades e intereses politicos/economicos en la cultura de la frontera.
