About this product
- DescriptionA new and authentic voice of the urban Lati experience. --Esmeralda Santiago, author of When I Was Puerto Rican In a stunning narrative combining the gritty rhythms of Jut Diaz with the irgenius of Walter Mosley, Bodega Dreams anunces the arrival of a writer who The Village Voice has already hailed as a Writer on the Verge. The word is out in Spanish Harlem: Willy Bodega is king.Need college tuition for your daughter?Start-up funds for your fruit stand?Bodega can help.He gives everyone a leg up, in exchange only for loyalty--and a steady income from the drugs he pushes. Lyric, inspired, and darkly funny, this powerful debut vel brilliantly evokes the trial of Chi, a smart, promising young man to whom Bodega turns for a favor.Chi is drawn to Bodega's street-smart idealism, but soon finds himself over his head, navigating an underworld of switchblade tempers, turncoat morality, and murder.
