With poignant humor and compassion, Nicholasa Mohr once again demonstrates her mastery as a writer of short fiction. In this memorable collection of seven short stories, Mohr celebrates the beauty and brilliance of the female spirit.
These compelling accounts set in New York City and the Caribbean transcend generational and gender barriers with themes that embrace honor, rites of passage, liberation and death. Mohr’s unforgettable characters come to life in the deftly woven, richly textured tales of life, love, and found identity.
“This collection of seven stories offers realistic, deliberate, yet delicate snapshots of the range of contemporary Latina life…Recommended for public libraries and women’s collection.”—Library Journal
“[Mohr’s] plain, straightforward narrative style makes the stories easy to read.”—Booklist
