Summary

Una voz única en la literatura latinoamericana actual que sacude, con un mordaz talento narrativo, la escena trans de Nueva York.

Con una mirada descarada y honesta, Iván Monalisa Ojeda se sumerge en el universo travesti de las calles neoyorquinas. Los cuentos de este libro narran su vida y la de sus compañeras, transexuales latinoamericanas que hacen la calle, fuman crystal meth, participan en concursos de belleza, buscan clientes sobre altísimos tacones y son víctimas de las nuevas políticas de inmigración de Trump. Un mundo donde la risa, la supervivencia, la muerte y el amor se entreveran en una ciudad que fascina y acorrala a las protagonistas.

El talento narrativo de Iván Monalisa Ojeda, que juega con una lengua callejera llena de ritmo, libertad y frescura, lo sitúa como una voz sorprendente y particular en la literatura latinoamericana actual.
