Description

Shifting between two distinctive voices, this novel is alternately narrated by a modern-day woman living in Mexico and by poet Gilberto Owen while on the verge of death. While the woman recalls her youthful years as an editor in New York City, haunted by Owen's ghost as she rode the subway, Owen recalls his own youth during the Harlem Renaissance of the late 1920s, when he belonged to literary circles along with writers such as Louis Zukofsky and Federico Garcia Lorca. Readers will be enthralled by these parallel subterranean journeys as both narrators retell and explore their pasts as part of New York's literary world. "Moviendose entre dos voces distintivas, esta novela es narrada alternativamente por una mujer viviendo en el Mexico de hoy en dia y por el poeta Gilberto Owen al borde de la muerte. Mientras la mujer recuerda sus anos de juventud como editora en Nueva York, perseguida por el fantasma de Owen cuando montaba el metro, Owen recuerda su propia juventud durante el Renacimiento de Harlem a finales de los 1920s cuando pertenecia a circulos literarios junto a escritores como Louis Zukofsky y Federico Garcia Lorca. Los lectores seran cautivados por estos paralelos viajes subterraneos mediante los cuales ambos narradores recuentan y exploran sus pasados como partes del mundo literario neoyorquino. "
