"This book is the best study of transamerican literary contact I have seen in a decade. It is the work of a consummate comparative Americanist who is conversant, often in breathtaking detail, with the literatures and cultures of a number of American geographies, both north and south. Gruesz has produced a comparative study par excellence, one that balances close readings with a rigorously historicist approach.Ambassadors of Culture is impressive on all counts and is a tremendous contribution."--Vera M. Kutzinski, Yale University "This is a splendid and gracefully written book--one of the most significant books in the field of American studies. Throughout Gruesz writes with clarity, directness, and elegance. She is without question one of the best inter-American literary historians today and ranks with the top comparative theorists generally."--JosÉ David SaldÍvar, University of California, BerkeleyGruesz, Kirsten Silva is the author of 'Ambassadors of Culture The Transamerican Origins of Latino Writing', published 2001 under ISBN 9780691050973 and ISBN 069105097X.
