About this product
- DescriptionPart of a new phase of post-1960s U.S. Lati literature, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Jut Diaz and Caramelo by Sandra Cisneros both engage in unique networks of paratexts that center on the performance of latinidad. Here, Ellen McCracken re-envisions Gerard Genette's paratexts for the present day, arguing that the Internet increases the range, authorship, and reach of the paratextual portals and that they constitute a key element of the creative process of Lati literary production in 21st century America. This smart and useful book examines how both velists interact with the interplay of populist and hegemonic multiculturalism and allows new points of entry into these vels.
