Carlos Fuentes

Famed Mexican author Carlos Fuentes believes that "in a novel, no one owns the truth." For more than five decades, the world-renowned Fuentes has given readers three-dimensional, nuanced characters. Admired for his ability to blend the inner life of his characters with the politics of the world around them, effectively combining the bedroom and the public square, Fuentes first came to public notice with his 1962 novel The Death of Artemio Cruz. Happy Families is the latest of Fuentes's novels to be translated into English, but who knows, the octogenarian could surprise those attending today's reading at the Alley Theatre with an off-the-cuff translation of his most recent work, Adan en Eden. An interview and book signing follow today's reading. 7:30 p.m. 615 Texas. For information, call 713-521-2026 or visit $5.
