Sandra Cisneros recommends
The Great Divide (2024)
Cristina Henríquez
"The Great Divide is Cristina Henriquez's novel reconstruction of the Panama Canal, a well-crafted and meticulously researched marriage of history and story."
The Suicide Museum (2023)
Ariel Dorfman
"Ariel Dorfman has created a history book disguised as a mystery, or maybe a mystery written as history. Lodged between memoir and fiction, The Suicide Museum is a labyrinth of mirrors, a tale of one nation, or perhaps all nations, where the tortured are condemned to live alongside their torturers. An intricate, thought-provoking read by a literary magician."
The Covenant of Water (2022)
Abraham Verghese
"Reading The Covenant of Water I felt as if I'd been plunged into an atmosphere thicker than air, or as if I was swimming in a sea of stories, each more intense and unforgettable than the last."
