Luis Negrón’s debut collection reveals the intimate world of a small community in Puerto Rico joined together by its transgressive sexuality. The writing straddles the shifting line between pure storytelling and satire, exploring the sometimes hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking nature of survival in a decidedly cruel world.
“Hilarious and heart-wrenching, provocative and pitch-perfect, each story is a tiny, transgressive explosion. I feel inadequate to the task of expressing just how wonderful this book is...read it slowly, and listen close; here is a master storyteller at his finest.”—Justin Torres, author of We the Animals
“Negrón is perhaps the most intimate and unsuspected heir to Manuel Puig.”–Antonio Morato, author of Lima y Limón
“These nine stories are rude, beautiful, funny, tender, sarcastic but, above all, human.”–Guillermo Barquero, Sentencias inútiles
“Like a cross between Manuel Puig and Luis Rafael Sánchez, the author of these stories shows us the tenderness, the love, and the bravery of those who decide to embrace their identity, whatever it happens to be.”–Margarita Pintado Burgos, Desvalijadas
