KDL Description:

GARCIA

Here is a dreamy and bittersweet story of a family divided by politics and geography by the Cuban revolution. It is the family story of Celia del Pino, and her husband, daughter, and grandchildren, from the mid-1930s to 1980. Celia’s story mirrors the magical realism of Cuba itself, a country of beauty and poverty, idealism and corruption.

Amazon Description:

“Remarkable…An intricate weaving of dramatic events with the supernatural and the cosmic…Evocative and lush…A rich and haunting narrative, an excellent new voice in contemporary fiction.”
