Overview
Fiction. "In this Extraordinary collage-epic, Rosmarie Waldrop measures the highly subjective experience of her 'narrator' in contemporary Mexico City against the discourses that control--and yet cannot quite contain--that experience: the historical (the 'discoveries' of Columbus and Alexander von Humboldt), the scientific (the formulation of quantum theory), and the political (the view from Washington in the late twentieth century).
