In this scintillating collection of stories Puerto Rican writer Ana Lydia Vega exposes machismo, Caribbean style. With deft pastiches of genre fiction-the thriller, the historical romance, the bodice ripper-she turns the traditions of Latin American fiction on their head and produces a work that critically reflects the influence of US culture. Though her stories appear in many anthologies, this is the first collection of Ana Lydia Vega's work to be published in English. It showcases one of the provocative 'post-feminist' voices of the Continent.
