This groundbreaking novel, set in New York City during the 1990s, is guaranteed to be unlike any literary experience you have ever had. Acclaimed Puerto Rican author Giannini Braschi has crafted this creative and insightful examination of the Hispanic-American experience, taking on the voices of a variety of characters—painters, poets, sculptors, singers, writers, filmmakers, actors, directors, set designers, editors, and philosophers—to draw on their various cultural, economic, and geopolitical backgrounds to engage in lively cultural dialogue. Their topics include love, sex, food, music, books, inspiration, despair, infidelity, jobs, debt, war, and world news. Braschi’s discourse winds throughout the city’s public, corporate, and domestic settings, offering an inside look at the cultural conflicts that can occur when Anglo Americans and Latin Americans live, work, and play together.

    Publishers Weekly

  • “As much a performance piece as a novel, reflecting the way language is actually used.”

    Library Journal

    " I read this in college for a Spanish Lit class and loved it. Wrote a thesis on it. This book is creative/captivating and truly embodies the identity/culture struggles that bi-lingual/bi-cultural individuals face in America. "
