In "The Culture of Fiction", the reader is introduced to the overlooked fiction of Colombian novelist Manuel Zapata Olivella. Captain-Hidalgo concludes that in Zapata's emphasis on race he shows the common ground between his works and those of other artists in the Afro-Americas. His novel "Chago, el gran putas" receives special attention here not only because of its pan-African stance, but because Zapata feels that some common misconceptions about Africa must be addressed through a reading of this novel.

Manuel Zapata Olivella (1920–2004), hailed by critic Richard Jackson as the dean of Black Hispanic writers, was the author of more than a dozen novels as well as numerous essays and short stories, including A Saint Is Born in Chimá and Chambacú, Black Slum. One of six children in a Colombian literary family, Zapata Olivella initially pursued medical training at the National University of Bogotá but interrupted his studies to write and travel. Writers from the African diaspora do get some notoriety in the United States if they write in English, but for those such as Olivella who wrote exclusively in Spanish (or anything other than English), that same notoriety is more difficult to attain.

Library of Congress. xiv, 179 p. ; Number of pages.

Captain-Hidalgo (Spanish, George Washington U.) analyzes the work of contemporary Columbian novelist Olivella, focusing on his continuing humanization of the socially or economically dispossessed as his style and ideology evolved from 1947 to the 1980s. The quotations are in both English and Spanish. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
