    "A deliciously barbed bagatelle from a fiction master, with perhaps a strain of allegory for a world devoured by rapaciousness." - Publishers Weekly

  • Adam in Eden

    By Carlos Fuentes

    Read by Robert Fass

    The last novel from Mexico's most celebrated author is a wise, comic story of political intrigue.

    Starred Review. "Fuentes does not cease to amaze. This latest work is an uproariously comic novel that deals head on with many of the gravest issues of 21st-century Mexico... The reader marvels throughout that the author of this fiercely perspicacious and laugh-out-loud funny novel is in his eighties: Fuentes's familiar wit and breadth of experience are here in spades, but he also packs a high-velocity edginess worthy of a writer a third his age." - Library Journal

  • Nietzsche On His Balcony

    By Carlos Fuentes

    Read by Robert Fass

    Carlos Fuentes imagines a modern meeting with the 19th century philosopher Nietzsche.

    "In the late Fuentes’s last novel [Nietzsche on His Balcony], the author reflects on love, justice, and power by engaging, through his character Dante Loredano, in an imaginary dialog with German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche." - Starred Review, Library Journal
