Praise For The Heart That Bleeds

"Powerful...a literary gem...wonderfully written dispatches that capture the richness and intensity of Latin America's reality. Those wanting a feel for the spirit of Latin America or what lies behind the headlines will hardly find more vivid accounts of the region's recent history."--The Miami Herald

"The Heart That Bleeds is the work of a master...Guillermoprieto has brought back reports that are unforgettable, brave in their clearsightedness, but unstinting, too, in their passion and sympathy. The countries of Latin America now have their Orwell."--David Remnick
