Carlos, acclaimed Mexican novelist, journalist, playwright, and essayist, made his international breakthrough with 'The Death of Artemio Cruz' in 1962. Major themes in Fuentes's work are the limitless power of fantasy, the dilemma of national identity, and the promise and failure of the Mexican revolution. Fuentes has been frequently mentioned as a candidate for the Nobel Prize for literature. Fuentes has been often paired with the Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borge., [but] Fuentes maintains a realistic stance of power and politics in Latin America - myths of the past and wide range of cultural references are combined with social critique. Fuentes also uses experimental techniques familiar from the nouveau roman and postmodern fiction. In later novels Fuentes has dealt the question of Mexican identity and its relationship to other cultures. Fuentes's first novel ' Where the Air Is Clear 'gave a panoramic picture of Mexico City and has been compared to John Dos Passos's novel 'Manhattan Transfer'. Fuentes' awards, include the Villaurrutia Prize (1975), Gallegos Prize (1977), Reyes Prize (1979), Mexican National Award for Literature (1984), Cervantes Prize (1987), Darío Prize (1988), New Order of Cultural Independence (1988), Prince of Asturias Prize (1994), Grinzane Cavouch International Prize (1994), National Order of Merit (1997) " - Books and Writers. A fictional recreation of the disappearance of Ambrose Bierce in Mexico in 1914. This awesome book was the inspired basis for 1986 blockbuster film directed by Luis Puenzo, starring Jane Fonda, Gregory Peck, Jimmy Smits. Enough said. Read to learn; go forth to share.
