Uruguayan Eduardo Galeano was an activist, visionary, and storyteller who began his hugely influential career with the publication of Open Veins of Latin America in 1971, which set a new standard for historical scholarship of Latin America. After this success, Galeano’s writing became increasingly lyrical and inspired by the storytelling of South America’s Indigenous peoples, while remaining politically engaged and prophetic.
 
This book picks up where Daniel Fischlin and Martha Nandorfy’s previous book on Galeano left off, focusing on timely and urgent themes in the last four books he wrote in the twenty-first century. Through his distinctive narrative style of short vignettes—tightly packed explosive stories—Galeano explores what it means to live as mortal beings with a finite amount of time on the earth, waxing and waning between despair and hope. As a hunter of stories, Galeano’s yarns place us, as his listeners and agents of history, in a web where past and future come together to create a present full of possibility.
 
Daniel Fischlin is University Research Chair at the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation at University of Guelph. He has written sixteen books, including three co-authored with Nandorfy: The Community of Rights—The Rights of Community, Eduardo Galeano: Through the Looking Glass, and The Concise Guide to Global Human Rights, all published by Black Rose Books. Martha Nandorfy is professor of literature and culture in the School of English and Theatre Studies at the University of Guelph. She is the author of The Poetics of Apocalypse: García Lorca’s Poet in New York.
