Description

A young mother in Mexico City, captive to a past that both overwhelms and liberates her, writes a novel of her days as a translator living in New York. A young translator, adrift in Harlem, is desperate to publish the works of Gilberto Owen, an obscure Mexican poet who lived in Harlem during the 1920s. And Gilberto Owen, dying in Philadelphia, recalls his heyday decades before, his friendships with Nella Larsen, Louis Zukofsky, and Federico GarcIa Lorca, and the young woman he saw in the windows of passing trains. As the voices of the narrators overlap and merge, they drift into one single stream, an elegiac evocation of love and loss.
