More About This Textbook


Fe en disfraz es una novela para todos los tiempos y para beberse como una taza de café negro y engullirse como un manjar. Viaje con Mayra Santos-Febres y nunca me senti tan arropada tanto por su literatura como por su inteligente escritura, calida como ella misma, cálida como el mar del Caribe.
Fe en disfraz se lee como un remedio a todos los males. Mayra nos dice: "El tiempo no existe y todo lo que existe es tiempo" y el tiempo con ella se vuelve frutal, vivible, y nos revela el movimiento de las estrellas.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Puerto Rican Santos Febres is a wellknown, awardwinning author and academic whose stories and novels have been translated into English and several other languages. Martín Tirado, a young academic from Puerto Rico working in Chicago, becomes obsessed with his mysterious colleague, Fe Verdejo, and ends up leaving his fiancée. Although this is an ordinary plotline, Martín and Fe's ensuing relationship exposes the roles of religion, class, race, and gender in colonial Latin America. Santos Febres manipulates these constructions in the past and present, using both her characters and her narrative to discuss everything from 18thcentury archives to modernday virtual web presentations. In effect, the ambiguity of Fe's character (which we never really penetrate) poses the question, Is she the researcher disguising herself as a slave or vice versa? The novel intentionally leaves readers with unanswered questions. The male firstperson narrative and strongly erotic content (both customary of the author's style) enhance this wellwritten novel, which is sure to become a literary classic. Recommended for all libraries and bookstores.—Sophie Lavoie, Univ. of New Brunswick, Fredericton
