"Zamora and Faris persuasively support their claim that magical realism is not only--or even mainly--a Latin American phenomenon, as is usually thought, but a truly international development of the last half century or so and, a major, perhaps "the" major, component of postmodernist fiction."--Matei Calinescu, Indiana University
