Sinopsis:

Book by Cofer Judith Ortiz

Críticas:

"Cofer . . . reveals herself to be a prose writer of evocatively lyrical authority, a novelist of historical compass and sensitivity. . . . One recognizes in the rich weave and vigorous elegance of the language of "The Line of the Sun" a writer of authentic gifts, with a genuine and important story to tell."--"New York Times Book Review" "In this extraordinary first novel, Judith Ortiz Cofer bridges two cultures, giving voice to people who are seldom heard from. . . . Cofer invites us into a climate where the settings are authentic and richly textured, and whose lives bound in cultural mythology are particularized through the strengths and gifts of language, fully realized characters, and a multi-dimensional narrative. There is great strength in the way Cofer evokes the fierce, loving, and brave Latin spirit that is the novel's real theme."--Joyce Johnson ""The Line of the Sun" reads like a dream, from the beautifully realized description of the deceptive "Paradise Lost", to the utterly different but equally vivid world of the urban North. . . . This is a splendid first novel."--"The State", Columbia, South Carolina "The writing in this superb novel stuns and surprises at every turn. Its sensuality and imagery . . . are riveting."--"San Juan Star" "Remarkable . . . Cofer is a fine storyteller. Her prose conveys all the energy and mystery of anticipation."--"Women's Review of Books" "A remarkable story, written from the heart as only the best stories are."--"St. Louis Post-Dispatch" "The Line of the Sun" reads like a dream, from the beautifully realized description of the deceptive "Paradise Lost," to the utterly different but equally vivid world of the urban North. . . . This is a splendid first novel."--"The State," Columbia, South Carolina" "Poetry . . . what distinguishes the book finally are the images, the phrases, the simple scenes that catch the ear like a sparkle catches the eye. --"Washington Times"" Remarkable . . .
