The objective of this book is to document the perceptions of distinguished Chilean authors and critics with respect to their own literary works produced approximately during the last fifteen years (1990-2005), and the manners in which these texts have generated cultural debate. The book consists, in large part, of in-depth academic interviews completed during the second semester of 2004 and the first part of 2005 with prominent authors whom are related to the New Chilean Narrative. These interviews are preceded by an introductory chapter, which outlines the key ideological and literary concepts present in the reflections found in the interviews. This volume contributes material that will enhance the understanding of key representatives of the New Chilean Narrative. These distinguished authors have a fundamental place in the history of Chilean literature and play a crucial role in Chile's and Latin America's literary scene. As demonstrated in the foreword of each of the in-depth interviews in this book, all of the writers have been recognized at an international level and have been bestowed with prestigious literary awards. In addition, their novels and volumes of short stories can be appreciated by a large community of readers and are the focus of investigation in diverse academic centers of Latin America, the United States, and Europe. This work will appeal to scholars in Latin American studies and contemporary Latin American literature.
