The Youngest Doll free pdf '...a collection that displays such talent and power' - "New York Times Book Review". 'Rosario Ferre shines, and it is high time for English-speaking readers to bask in her light' - "The Nation". 'The 14 stories in "The Youngest Doll", as radiant as they are disturbing, are animated by ferocious river prawns, trees that weep and a 'town with beaches of white gunpowder which thundered at dusk when the tide began to rush in.' In masterly prose, the Puerto Rican-born poet, essayist and fiction writer Rosario Ferre conveys a world in which stories hide within stories, the personal is always political, mystery is as common and sudden as tenderness and endings are violent.Ms. Ferre (who has deftly translated the stories, occasionally with a collaborator, from the original Spanish) writes with an irony that cloaks anger about the oppression and danger inherent in being either a protected upper-class woman or a marginalized working-class woman in Puerto Rico's patriarchal society' - "New York Times Book Review". In two closing essays, Ferre considers how her experiences as a Latin American woman with ties to the United States has brought to her writing a dual cultural perspective. Rosario Ferre's works include "Sweet Diamond Dust" and "The House on the Lagoon".
