In recent years, Spanish has grown in importance as an international language, leading to greater demand for professionals with advanced linguistic skills and an understanding of Spanish and Spanish-American cultures. In addition to teaching, this demand has had a profound effect on a number of other sectors, including business and politics, the media, cultural management and international mediation, and specialist linguistics. The Master Expert in Spanish as a Foreign Language in Professional Environments is designed to reflect the growing need for highly trained language professionals in these fields.
Characters in fiction don't spend much time dying anymore. Of course they die—if you were to remove from the shelves all the novels in which a life is lost, the stacks would be bare—and sometimes, as in "The Lovely Bones," they speak to us from beyond the grave.

The back of the book jacket reads, “Regularly compared to… Thomas Pynchon, William Gaddis, and Don DeLillo.”
The office of a reviewer is, in a republic of letters, as beneficial and necessary, though as odious and unpleasant, as that of an executioner in a civil state. —Editorial in the Monthly Anthology , 1807 Before the “general audience” ascended to power, aristocratic benefactors ruled the art world. For centuries, authors subsisted outside the open market. Their readers were their patrons; the audience, in theory, an audience of one, plus the hangers-on.
