Faces and Masks

'“[Galeano’s] works invent genre by smashing categories and joining fragments to yield a ‘voice of voices.’ . . . Memory of Fire is devastating, triumphant . . . sure to scorch the sensibility of English-language readers.” —The New York Times Book Review“From pre-Columbian creation myths and the first European voyages of discovery and conquest to the Age of Reagan, here is ‘nothing less than a unified history of the Western Hemisphere . . . recounted in vivid prose.’ ” —The New Yorker“A massive fresco of Latin American history since the pre-Columbian era to modern times.” —Isabel Allende“An extraordinary canter through the history of the Americas.” —Isabel Fonseca“[Galeano’s] tenderness is devastating, his truthfulness furious.” —John Berger“History has been rescued by Galeano’s prodigious talent. No book ever breathed more vibrantly than this one.” —Houston Chronicle“Passionate and lyrical, lucidly visual.” —The New Statesman“Galeano’s outrage is tempered by intelligence, an ineradicable sense of humor, and hope.” —Los Angeles Times'
