Cedric Belfrage was an author, journalist, translator, and co-founder of the radical weekly newspaper the National Guardian. English by birth, he was deported by the U.S. government back to England in 1955, and later became the translator for the Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano.
“[Memory of Fire] will reveal to you the meaning of the New World as it was, and of the world as we have it now.”
- Boston Globe
“A book as fascinating as the history it relates.... Galeano is a satirist, realist, and historian, and... deserves mention alongside John Dos Passos, Bernard DeVoto, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.”
- Los Angeles Times
“Memory of Fire is devastating, triumphant... sure to scorch the sensibility of English-language readers.”
- New York Times
“An epic work of literary creation... there could be no greater vindication of the wonders of the lands and people of Latin America than Memory of Fire.”
- Washington Post
