"El tiempo en la vida de los amigos y conocidos de Ulises Lima y Arturo Belano pasaba mientras ellos han desaparacidos o simplemente transeúnte. No lo sé cual. Me encanta a este libro. Hay comedia, tragedia, filosofía, buen comentario de poesía. Es posible que ellos viven como poetas aun no escriben como eso?" Jun 27, 2016 02:01AM

Playing in the Dark by Toni Morrison
Rate this book

Elegant prose (not surprising), bold yet intuitive analysis, opens an ability to view whiteness, establishes an Africanist (her term-read book for explanation-it's quite compact) presence in American history, consciousness, and metaphor.

“And the tide shrinks back into its womb
And I hope the empty shells and bones of your stories
Will litter and clutter the shores
And I hope that when I find them
I’ll remember how they danced
