Agua quemada is a collection of four novels whose protagonists represent the lowest to the highest echelons of society in Mexico City. While widely disparate in their hopes and fears, Fuentes intertwines these characters' lives in uncanny ways. Together these novels offer fascinating insight into the development of Mexican society since the Revolution of 1910. Containing some of the most animated writing by one of Mexico's best-known author, these stories illuminate the tragedy, chaos, and passion of post-revolutionary Mexico City.
