Santo Domingo: Zemí Book (Crown Octavo), 2019. First edition. Paperback. 460p., wrps. New. Item #192351
Orishas, saints, luases, demons and angels cavort in a fantastic Puerto Rico that only Pedro Cabiya's fertile imagination could have conceived. Different ministries of the administrative bureaucracy of the multiverse compete to recover the valuable merchandise of a sidereal contraband abandoned in Santurce, capital of the Borikwá Republic... But stealing that loot will not be as easy as they think. Political satire and cosmic parody are combined in a network of espionage and action where the great questions of existence share space with the most profane humor, producing a novel that resists classification within known genres, announcing a new one. A prequel to his immensely popular novel Trance, Third World promises, like its predecessor, an impossible-to-interrupt reading.
