About this book

Reviews

"Though the author does not aspire to rewrite the history of women's writing or Cuban literature, her previous comprehensive works on escritoras cubanas certainly make her an authoritative voice. Similarly, the copious endnotes point readers to appropriate sources for fuller discussion, so the book will indeed prove a useful survey of Cuban women writers." - J.M. Beatson, Choice
