Loud-mouthed, funny and insightful, Dovalpage takes the reader for a trip from the streets of Havana to a New Mexican town. Some stories flirt with magic realism; others explore love affairs gone wrong. A Cuban teenager suddenly goes from using ration cards to discovering credit cards. An American professor falls for a young santera. A New Age group attempts to achieve self-realization amid scarcities and blackouts.


Teresa Dovalpage was born in Havana, Cuba. She is the author of five novels, including A Girl like Che Guevara (Soho Press). She lives in Taos, NM.
