"The Nicholson-McClennen project assumes the need to begin with the sociopolitical circumstances of the generation following the boom, and not necessarily in the first place its aesthetics as either a continuation of or a rejection of the boom. (...) [As] their title indicates, the organizers of this project have perceived a wider sociopolitical displacement than the traditional paradigms within which the boom authors still moved: the effects of globalization and, as part of globalization, the displacement of Latin American society toward nontraditional settings (the United States, the Netherlands, and, for women and queer writers, an alien Mexico)."--David William Foster, Arizona State University
