June Book of the Month: Soledad by Angie Cruz

Book Discussion to take place on:

 June 15th, @2:30PM-4:00PM

Word Up Bookstore, 2113 Amsterdam Avenue (Corner of 165th street)

At eighteen, Soledad couldn’t get away fast enough from her contentious family with their endless tragedies and petty fights. Two years later, she’s an art student at Cooper Union with a gallery job and a hip East Village walk-up. But when Ta Gorda calls with the news that Soledad’s mother has lapsed into an emotional coma, she insists that Soledad’s return is the only cure. Fighting the memories of open hydrants, leering men, and slick-skinned teen girls with raunchy mouths and snapping gum, Soledad moves home to West 164th Street. As she tries to tame her cousin Flaca’s raucous behavior and to resist falling for Richie – a soulful, intense man from the neighborhood – she also faces the greatest challenge of her life: confronting the ghosts from her mother’s past and salvaging their damaged relationship. Evocative and wise, Soledad is a wondrous story of culture and chaos, family and integrity, myth and mysticism, from a Latina literary light.
