Overview of Magic Realists' short story art, written by Jessica Amanda Salmonson.

  • Some Ghostly Tales From South America A Lackadaisical Overview of Magic Realists' Short Story Art Jessica Amanda Salmonson Joao Guimaraes Rosa (1908-1967) was a Brazilian diplomat & physician whose short stories of rural Brazil are sophisticated, elegant & macabre

  • The term Magic Realism is frequently used to distinguish South American from North American fantasy

  • A bit harder to find, but quite as good, is Short Stories by Latin American Women: The Magic & the Real (Houston: Arte Publico, 1990) edited by Celia Correas de Zapata, a big anthology that does not overlap Alberto's selection at all

  • Another Brazilian, Murilo Rubiao, is inferior to most of these others, but The Ex-Magician & Other Stories (NY: Harper & Row, 1979) is chiefly weirds & contes cruel

  • This connected series of commentaries is a dynamic work &amp I will expand it as I have time to read or re-read select volumes of short stories by magic realists
