This volume analyzes the impact of rock music, movies, and other elements of popular culture on the work of a group of Spanish novelists who rose to prominence in the 1990s. Thirteen essays by American scholars explore such topics as the function of punk in the fiction of Ray Loriga and Benjamin Prado; how the Generation X aesthetic transcends the age of the writer; and Gabriela Bustelo’s employment of a musical “soundtrack” in Veo Veo. Henseler teaches Spanish at Union College, and Pope is affiliated with the U. of Virginia.
