Edited by Marta Caminero-Santangelo and
Roy C. Boland Osegueda
In this volume sixteen scholars from the
the Caribbean, Latin
Europe and Australia study some of the
narratives of trauma and testimonial novels
about Rafael Leonidas
31 years as dictator of the Dominican Republic.
Combining theoretical insight with illuminating
the articles demonstrate how writers as
diverse as Mario Vargas
Llosa, Julia Alvarez, Edwidge Danticat,
Junot Díaz, Freddy
Prestol Castillo, Nelly Rosario, Angie
Cruz and Pedro Vergés
use the “lies” of fiction to
reveal fundamental “truths’ about
freedom, human dignity and individual sovereignty.
authors include Ignacio López-Calvo, Ana
Hickman, Marta Caminero-Santangelo, Roy C. Boland
Osegueda, and others.
