Carlos Fuentes is at the height of his powers in this stunning new novel—a magnificent epic of passion, magic, and desire in modern Mexico, a rich and remarkable tapestry set in a world where free will fights with the wishes of the gods. Destiny and Desire is a monumental achievement from one of the masters of contemporary literature.
What Thomas Piketty says
One of my favorite books in 2014 was Carlos Fuentes’s novel. It is a wonderful meditation about contemporary capitalism in Mexico.
