Summary
"This book explores how the body literary fiction from 1940 to 1980, by José Revueltas, Juan Rulfo, Rosario Castellanos and Vicente Leñero, reflects the control of the Mexican State. It envisions characters who are sick, disabled or miraculously healed as a collective that challenges this control" --
