A critical analysis of Latin American writers from the 1960s to the present reveals interesting insights into the ambiguity of the fiction's break from traditional social realism to a representation of realism which is incomprehensible and paradoxical. Swanson (Hispanic studies, State U. of New York, Albany) examines the "new novel's" inconsistencies, political statements, and postmodern intertextuality through the work of Puig, Vargas Llosa, Cabrera, Infante, Fuentes, Donoso, Sainz, Lispector, and Isabel Allende.
