Luxury Riviera Maya
As the name implies, this area is defined by Mayan culture and perhaps no other ancient civilization has been translated into such contemporary luxury as that of the indigenous who once ruled over this region.

Ranging from 1843 to present, Mexico in Mind offers a remarkably varied sampling of English speaking writers' impressions of the land south of the border. John Reed rides with Pancho Villa in 1914; Graham Greene defends Mexico's priests; Langston Hughes describes a bullfight; Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs are literally intoxicated by Mexico. Alice Adams visits Frida Kahlo's house; Ann Louise Bardach meets the mysterious Subcommandante Marcos face-to-face.

Fictional accounts are equally vivid, with short stories by Katherine Anne Porter and Ray Bradbury, and excerpts from John Steinbeck's The Pearl, Tennessee Williams' Night of the Iguanas, and Salman Rushdie's The Ground Beneath Her Feet. Poets weigh in as well, from Muriel Rukeyser and Archibald MacLeish to Sandra Cisneros. From the bustle of Mexico City to coffee plantations in remote Chiapas, from Mayan ruins to the markets at Oaxaca, the scenes evoked in this anthology reflect the rich variety of the place and its history, sure to enchant vacationers, expatriates, and armchair travelers everywhere.
