About this product
- DescriptionIn the tradition of the Latin American testimonio, this is the story of Juan Rivera, a.k.a. Juanito Xtravaganza, a Lati runaway youth who ends up homeless in the streets of New York in the late 70s and becomes partner of the internationally famous 1980s Pop artist Keith Haring during some of the most frenetically productive years of his brief life, as told to the author and retold by him. A hybrid text - part testimonio, part linguistic and cultural analysis, and part art criticism - this is also a history of New York Lati neighborhoods during this period of devastating disinvestment and gentrification, as well as a personal, heart-felt meditation on the art of listening and the ethical limits of representing queer Lati lives.
- Author BiographyArnaldo Cruz-Malave is Professor of Spanish and Comparative Literature, and Associate Director of the Latin American and Latino Studies Institute at Fordham University. He is co-editor of Queer Globalization: Citizenship and the Afterlife of Colonialism.
