Caribbean Representation in New Book: Sólo cuento II

Sólo cuento II brings together 32 stories (by writers publishing in Spanish), described by director of Literature at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) Rosa Beltrán as “exceptional tales marked by various trends, ages, stylistic and thematic interests, whose only link is the language in which they are written.” Like the earlier anthology, Sólo cuento I, this anthology is structured around “atmospheres” or thematic sections: Limits; Apprenticeships; Revelations; Perversions; Blood, Sweat, and Tears; Creatures; Encounters. The collection is edited by Ana García Bergua, author of Isla de bobos and Edificio, among other books. The prologue is by Alejandro Toledo.

Caribbean authors in the collection include Yolanda Pizarro Arroyo (Puerto Rico), Karla Suárez (Cuba), Ángel Santiesteban-Prats (Cuba), Alondra Badano Gaona (Panama), and Aurora Arias (Dominican Republic).

Both Sólo cuento I and II recently won the CANIEM (Cámara Nacional de la Industria Editorial Mexicana) Prize 2010 for the best book in the literature category. The prize will be awarded on November 12, 2010, as part of the celebrations for International Book Day at 10:00am at the National Theater of Arts in Mexico City.
