A masterpiece of contemporary Latin American fiction by Mexico’s greatest twentieth-century woman writer, The Book of Lamentations draws on two centuries of struggle among the Maya Indians and the white landowners in the Chiapas region of southern Mexico. The stark clarity of Castellanos’s vision is beautifully rendered in Esther Allen’s masterful first-ever English translation.
