RARA-AVIS: atmospherics Latina and Latino writing

Erick, you'll need to visit your library to read Julia Alvarez' work.

For a view of Trujillo's dictatorship and people living in small nations like the Dominican Republic, read In the Time of the Butterflies.

Her In the name of Salom鬠Julia Alvarez' biographical novel, compares the daughter-mother careers of Camila Henriquez and Salom頕re񡺠the mother, the Dominican Republic's national poet, the daughter, a worker for the revolution in early Castro Cuba, who first retires from a US academic career.

Latour's book certainly lets you know how one Cubano feels about today's Cuba so you might want to read The Outsider sooner than otherwise.

Related, to revolucion, check into Graciela Limon's In Search of Bernabe, for intense fiction about mothers sons and tragedy.

That's what comes to mind.
