Love and Passion in Latin American Fiction
In celebration of the upcoming Dia Dos Namorados (Valentine's Day), we’ve selected 5 classic Latin American stories about love, passion, and their inseparable counterparts: hatred, vengeance, and violence.
Years have passed since political prisoner, Paulina, suffered at the hands of her captor: a man whose face she never saw, but whom she can still recall with terrifying clarity. Ariel Dorfman's play premiered at the Royal Court in 1991, and is now recognised as a modern classic. This 20th-anniversary edition was published alongside the play's West End revival in 2011, starring Thandie Newton in her debut stage role. In 1994, Roman Polanski directed a film of the work.
