'A lucidly written, illuminating account of how both an imagined
and real Latin America has become a privileged symbolic site for
working through the crises of national identity of Britain, the
United States and Australia' -- Professor Noel Valis, Yale
'Provides a remarkable gift to postcolonial studies. The case could not be more thoroughly made for Latin America as fecund country for the generation of frank and compromising fantasies in British, American and Australian literature' -- Professor David Atwell, University of York
