Latin American author new identity inspires new book.


Edmundo Paz Soldan has emerged as one of the leading lights in the Latin American literature movement and furthers his cause with his new novel 'El Delirio de Turing' (Turing's Delirium).

After co-editing an anthology of work by US-based Latin American writers, Soldan has taken aspects of both his new home in the US and of his Bolivian heritage and meshed them reflected in his latest work.

In his new book, presented at the Miami International Book Fair, Paz Soldan reflects the political instability in Latin America through the eyes of rebel guerrilla fighters and determined computer hackers, reflecting his new found cultural identity, reports the Miami Herald.

'El Delirio de Turing' is out now on Ediciones Alfaguara S.A priced USD19.95.
