The third volume of Eduardo Galeano'sMemory of Firetrilogy,Century of the Windoffers a panorama of Galeano's singular vision of the past, turbulent century: from the bucolic New Jersey laboratory of Thomas Alva Edison to the armies of Emiliano Zapata and Fidel Castro to the Reagan-era CIA "neutralizations" in the forests of Latin America. Dizzying, enraging, and beautifully written,Century of the Windis a sweeping interpretation of the Americas no work of history has previously imagined.
Eduardo Galeano's works, which have been translated into twenty-eight languages, include Memory of Fire (three volumes); Open Veins of Latin America; Soccer in Sun and Shadow; Days and Nights of Love and War; The Books of Embraces; Upside Down; and Mirrors. Born in Montevideo, he lived in exile in Argentina and Spain for years before returning to Uruguay. He was the recipient of the first Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom.
