About this item
This overwhelming novel, which enshrines Rita Indiana as narrator contains many layers and fascinating twists that eludes all synthesis. The story begins in the apartment of saint and advisor to the Dominican President, Esther Escudero, better known as Omicunlé. His young maid, Alcide Figueroa, whom Esther helped leave a life of prostitution thanks to the collaboration of Eric Vitier, is about to become plagued by the past, present and future that seems dizzying and nearly impossible at times. Including deities that inhabit the Caribbean Sea, political interests, Goya’s prints, gender reassignment and numerous plot twists, few other works of fiction speak of contemporary art as precisely asLa mucama de omicunlé. With a subtlety that avoids indoctrination and postmodern cynicism, this novel does not stray away from what is pure and simple.
