Poetic Obituaries: [Carlos Fuentes] combined the careers of a novelist

and a diplomat, serving in Geneva, Switzerland, among other posts. He was one of the generation of writers, along with Mr. Garcia Marquez, and Peruvian novelist Mario Vargas Llosa, who in the 1960s formed part of the "Latin American Boom" introducing the literature of the region for the first time to a world audience.
