New Book: Eduardo Lalo’s “Historia de Yuké”


Librería Laberinto in Old San Juan has just announced that Eduardo Lalo’s latest novel, Historia de Yuké (Corregidor, 2018) is now available. See our previous post with an interview in which the writer speaks about the reception of Caribbean literature in the framework of cultural geopolitics and the market: Eduardo Lalo on Caribbean Literature.

Description: Mythical and historical time intersect in this novel. Historia de Yuké is an innovative approach to the terrible experience of the conquest of the Caribbean, a true laboratory for the subsequent European incursions into the American continent, which here is narrated far from the logic of the chroniclers of the Indies and Eurocentric (his)stories.

Translated by Ivette Romero. For the original, in Spanish, see
