    EL BOOM
    From the 1960s onward, Latin American literature has gained a worldwide audience and is now regarded as one of the most vibrant and creative in the world. Young writers such as Carlos Fuentes (Mexico, 1929-), Gabriel García Márquez (Colombia, 1928-, Nobel Prize for Literature 1982) and Mario Vargas Llosa (Peru, 1936-) were the most prominent in the Boom, as it came to be known, but some older writers also gained a wider audience — for example, Jorge Luis Borges (Argentina, 1899-1986) and Miguel Ángel Asturias (Guatemala, 1899-1974, Nobel Prize for Literature 1967). Although the Boom is often associated with “magic realism”, a style which mixes reality and fantasy, this in fact originated with earlier writers such as Asturias, Alejo Carpentier (Cuba, 1904-80) and Juan Rulfo (Mexico, 1918-86), and some of the young writers, notably Vargas Llosa, largely shun fantasy in their work.
