Latin American Literature and Mass Media (Garland Publishing Inc., 2001). In this collection of articles, the editors examine Latin American literature in the context of a contemporary audiovisual culture dominated by mass media such as photography, film, and the Internet. The collection critically assesses Latin American media theories and shows how literary works, particularly novels, have sustained visibility in a highly competitive media ecology. The volume analyzes how authors of fictional works have engaged the mass media and mass culture, using their narratives as powerful aesthetic tools to represent their own media multiplicity.
