Habanera, A Portrait of a Cuban Family (Floricanto Press, 2010)
“La Habanera is an irresistible, even wickedly addictive ride into dysfunction within dysfunction. Rick in wit and irony provided by Longina, a savvy young narrator coming of age in an eccentric family living in post-revolutionary Cuba, this novel delivers what Dovalpage does best: laugh-out-loud humor and deeply felt, deeply moving drama–all of it sharply spiced with bad and bawdy sandunga!”
Lorraine Lopez, author of The Gifted Gabaldon Sisters, winner of the Miguel Marmol Prize for Fiction and a finalist for the 2010 PEN/ Faulkner Award.
