The article addresses the agents active in the ‘boom’ of Latin American literature in the Netherlands. Initially, the interest in Latin American literature was very limited in the Netherlands. Spanish writers were more popular. On the basis of bibliographical information, one can clearly see how quickly this situation changed.
