Mario Benedetti

URUGUAY, 1920 - 2009

From the same generation as Julio Cortázar, Carlos Fuentes and José Donoso, Mario Benedetti is one of the relatively few writers to have successfully combined a sense of aesthetic mission with a political conscience. His novels are at once some of the most profound and most towering literary portraits of Latin America society as a whole.

"With so little of Benedetti's work to be found in English, the posthumous publication of a recently translated collection of his short stories is a welcome and well-deserved addition to what remains."

JEREMY GARBER on The Rest is Jungle and Other Stories

 

"The Rest is Jungle is a remarkable showcase for the work of a writer who sought to speak of love, power and commitment as directly and passionately as possible."
