it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, biography
Read in March, 2012

I had a hard time putting this novel down. Alvarez masterfully weaves fact and fiction together in her beautiful, often poetic prose. The story is engrossing; I didn't know anything about Trujillo's dictatorship in the Dominican Republic. It reminded me of reading Allende's House of Spirits.
