Carlos Fuentes of Mexico was one of this era’s best-known novelists and essayists in the Spanish-speaking world. His books have been widely translated into English and other languages. The New York Times called him, “Mexico’s elegant public intellectual and grand man of letters, whose panoramic novels captured the complicated essence of his country’s history for readers around the world.” He died in May 2012.
