ISBN: 9780698136953

Classification: Fiction

Synopsis: En este relato íntimo y verdadero de una promesa cumplida, la aclamada novelista y poeta dominicana Julia Álvarez nos lleva en un viaje de experiencias que desafía la forma en que vemos la historia y cómo puede ser reinventada cuando los ciudadanos de dos países—tradicionalmente en conflicto a pesar de la frontera compartida—se hacen amigos.

En una historia que va más allá de las fronteras y las familias, Álvarez reflexiona sobre las alegrías y las cargas del amor por sus padres, por su esposo y por un joven haitiano llamado Piti. 

"Una amistad inesperada entre dos personas, dos familias y dos países brilla en todo el centro de este libro. Somos privilegiados al poder presenciar y ser parte de este viaje, a través de la narrativa divertida y reflexiva de Julia Álvarez, que nos muestra una Haití antes y después del terremoto".

—Edwidge Danticat, autora de BROTHER, I’M DYING
