The Crack Manifesto.

In 1996, a number of Mexican writers—namely Pedro Ángel Palou, Eloy Urroz, Ignacio Padilla, Ricardo Chávez Castañeda, and Jorge Volpi—wrote the Crack Manifesto “dedicated to breaking with the pervading Latin American tradition of Magical Realism in favor of a return to the complexity of plot and style found in the works of Jorge Luis Borges and Julio Cortázar”. Here you can find the text in English. [via Context/Dalkey Archive Press]
