    The term Mexican Drug War misleads. It implies that the ongoing bloodbath, which has now killed well over 100,000 people, is an internal Mexican affair. But this diverts attention from the US role in creating and sustaining the carnage. It's not just that Americans buy drugs from and sell weapons to Mexico's murderous cartels. It's that ever since the US prohibited the use and sale of drugs in the early 1900s, it has pressured Mexico into acting as its border enforcer - with increasingly deadly consequences.

    La protagonista de esta novela de Carmen Boullosa retorna, como acaso lo hubieran querido Eurídice o Beatriz, a los territorios de la infancia: esa condición salvajemente desordenada donde se genera la conciencia. La infanta de Antes, salta el cerco del jardín de las palabras para recobrar de ellas su inocencia, sabe que en el miedo principia el alfabeto de su historia: la de una identidad que como su cuerpo escapa a la vida. Antes recibió el Premio Xavier Villaurrutia 1989.
