Praise for The Crystal Frontier

"Carlos Fuentes has intimate knowledge of both countries and has built an international literary reputation on that knowledge and his compassionate champoinship of the poor and oppressed. The Crystal Frontier, with its powerful writing and may fine passages, reinforces that reputation."—Washington Post Book Review
