Narcisa the Beautiful
By Mareya Robles
Translated from Spanish by Anna Diegel with the author
A feminist comic masterpiece Playing on the rich Latin American literary tradition of the Saint's Life, Cuban writer Mireya Robles creates a humorous, ultimately horrifying
vision of the nuclear family in this innovative
feminist novel, set in Cuba's asphyxiating provincial society of the
nineteen fifties. Hagiography of Narcisa the Beautiful is an important
text both for gender studies and for Latin American literature.
"Very amusing, very feminist - a rarity in Hispanic Letters" PROFESSOR JEAN FRANCO, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY
