This iconic Spanglish novel by the leading Hispanic-American poet Giannina Braschi was heralded by the New York Daily News as “an in your face assertion of the vitality of Latino culture in the U.S.”  Jean Franco of Columbia University praised Braschi for her “extraordinary virtuosity, her command of many different registers, her dizzying ability to switch between English and Spanish.  It is also a very funny novel, a novel of argumentative conversations that cover food, movies, literature, art, the academy, sex, memory, and everyday life. It is a book that should be performed as well as read.
