Editorial Selection

Half-dozen Years Ago, So Many American Publishers Were Issuing Fiction By Latin American Authors That Critics Dubbed Period 'Latin Boom. ' boom inevitably subside, but now it is returning stronger than ever-not just with more but also with books that are already major critical or commercial successes in Latin America and Europe. Rebirth will be most noticeable on or about Feb. 1, publication date of Jorge Amado's'showdown'-worldwide best seller for which Bantam paid 250 000 two years ago, highest price any American publisher has paid for rights to publish foreign novel in hard cover. Mr. Amado's presence will be widely apparent in American bookstores in 1988 for other reasons as well: Avon Books plans to issue 13 of his novels, beginning in March with first English-Language publication of 'Captains of Sands, ' book written exactly 50 years ago. Every month after that, it intends to reissue another Amado title trade paperback. Garcia Marquez Novel Another Latin author who will be prominent here in 1988 is Gabriel Garcia Marquez, winner of 1982 Nobel Prize in Literature. His new novel, 'Love in Time of Cholera, ' also worldwide best seller, is to be published by Alfred. Knopf on April 29 first printing of 100 000 copies. It is also main selection of Book-of-Month Club, it will be excerpt in New Yorker, and it has been optioned for movie. However, unlike Garcia Marquez's 'One Hundred Years of Solitude', which has sold more than million copies in its Avon paperback edition, 'Cholera' is much more conventional novel. 'It is book that will stand critics on their heads, ' says specialist in Latin American Literature at New York University, Alexander Coleman. 'But it like Balzac; there is no magic realism here. ' Magic realism is term used to describe Latin literary penchant for intertwining fact and fantasy, reality and illusion, legend and superstition. While magic realism is still in evidence, as it is evident in Fiction of some younger United States Authors, literary sleight of hand is less dominant in newer Latin novels. Emphasis on Story Over Style 'What I'm seeing is trend toward more traditional narrative line, emphasizing storytelling rather than stylistic artistry that draws attention to Latin American Literature, ' say director of Literature program for America Society, Lori Carlson. Latin Authors are still using novels to discuss region's social, economic and political problems, and publishers apparently hope that widespread discussion of those problems in American Press will translate into sale of books by Latin Authors. Their hope and their receptivity to Latin Authors are buttressed by realization that Latin Fiction is widely taught in comparative Literature courses in United States as well as in Latin studies programs.
