The geographical and social scope of the stories is really broad, total respect (and a bit of jealousy) for the investigative reporting that led to them.
Maybe this is obvious for a journalist, but how fascinating it must have been to visit so many places and talk to so many people from all camps of life.
She points out that much of the content and leads came through local journalists, which is just as excellent, making the local media part of each story.
The narrators in her stories represent the scope of stakeholders very well.
The writing is almost always polished and careful, it is a fun, good read.
Certainly some articles are tighter than others, and maybe there's a correlation with the topic of a specific story (not all are as intriguing as african religion in brazil or teenage assassins in medel Coincidentally, while reading this book, the January 2018 issue of National Geographic arrived and Alma Guillermoprieto had a beautiful piece on Columbia's recovery from civil war.
That was a fun surprise.
I've traveled to Venezuela and Guatemala and was captivated by the beauty of the rich landscapes and the kind, generous people I met there.
Yet, I've puzzled over these countries, so rich in natural resources, and also so devastatingly poor.
How can that be? And the violence, the constant undercurrent of violence.
One has to be always vigilant.
I was hoping that reading this could help me to understand.
Each city th Hands down the best writing on Latin America I've ever read.
I was introduced to Alma Guillemoprieto‘s fascinating book The Heart That Bleeds (1995) by Daniel Alarcon from his list “Ten Powerful books from the Latin American Canon” in the P.
section of his novel Lost City Radio.
It is a series of dispatches that Guillemoprieto wrote for the New Yorker in the late 80s and early 90s on different situations in several Latin American countries.
It is dated in that all of the dispatches are from 1989 to 1993, but she is a compelling storyteller and resourceful reporter that weaves history, and culture into her dispatches that remain worthwhile accounts of Latin America.
Since I am planning to visit Peru this summer I wanted to read up on Peru’s recent history, so I started with the dispatches from Lima in 1990 and 1993 first instead of reading the book in strict chronolog
This is hands down one the best books I've ever read and definitely one of my favorite books from now on.
It mixez both of my mayors: Politic science and social communication, in such a perfect way.
This books teaches and inspires me in the same way.
It was wonderfully and powerfully written by a woman who went far and beyond to show the world a little bit of what was happening in Latin America, in such a cruel time as the 90's.
Praise for the author.
My first encounter with Alma Guillermoprieto's reporting ocurred some five years ago in the pages of The New Yorker.
The article was called "Fidel's farewell" and it was about the old Cuban leader's decision to step back from his country's presidency after nearly fifty years of uninterrumpted power.
I really liked her stylr and her insightful analysis, so when I came across this book and found out that it was a compilation of articles on Latin America from the early 90's, I bought it.
Each article carries some city's name and the year it was writtem for its title: Rio, 1993; Buenos Aires, 1991.
Some countries are represented twice: Colombia, Brasil.
She mostly unravels the connection between poverty and abandonment in which millions of people in this continent struggle to live in, and how it is enforced and deepened every day, by its corrupt leaders, its
Although no longer current events, the vitality of her writing makes every one of these stories feel as urgent and relevant as the day they were written.
Each is a glimpse into countries convulsing with change, seemingly on the point of doom or salvation, that had me running to Wikipedia after every essay to find out what happened next.
Her writing has a way of revealing truth indirectly.
She explores one issue and reveals another, much larger one in the process.
She quotes an assassin, executive or miner and it's n
