An introduction is offered to Salomón de la Selva’s pan-American project – a series of dinners bringing together writers from North and South America, all held in New York between 1915 and 1919. The chapter organisation of the book is explained: two scene-setting chapters precede five that move chronologically through the period. The book is situated with respect to the concept of the American Tropics, to transnational literary studies, to historicism, and to biography. Finally, a sketch is offered of the anomalous critical position of Salomón de la Selva, seen within Latin American literature as a minor poet and to date largely ignored within US literature, even as a Latino writer.
