Description

This groundbreaking novel, set in New York City during the 1990s, is guaranteed to be unlike any literary experience you have ever had. Acclaimed Puerto Rican author Giannina Braschi has crafted this creative and insightful examination of the Hispanic-American experience, taking on the voices of a variety of characters - painters, poets, sculptors, singers, writers, filmmakers, actors, directors, set designers, editors, and philosophers - to draw on their various cultural, economic, and geopolitical backgrounds to engage in lively cultural dialogue. Their topics include love, sex, food, music, books, inspiration, despair, infidelity, jobs, debt, war, and world news. Braschi's discourse winds throughout the city's public, corporate, and domestic settings, offering an inside look at the cultural conflicts that can occur when Anglo Americans and Latin Americans live, work, and play together. Hailed by Publishers Weekly as "a literary liberation", this energetic and comical novel celebrates the contradiction that makes contemporary American culture so wonderfully diverse.

First published in Spanglish in 1998 to rave reviews, this is the first English audiobook of Yo-Yo Boing!
