M u n d o C r u el Stories

Luis Negrón

Translated by Suzanne Jill Levine Nine short stories set in the mostly queer, working class community of Santurce, Puerto Rico. Mundo Cruel features powerful, funny, voice-driven storytelling from debut Puerto Rican author. “Hilarious and heart-wrenching, provocative and pitch-perfect, each story is a tiny, transgressive explosion. I feel inadequate to the task of expressing just how wonderful this book is…read it slowly, and listen close; here is a master storyteller at his finest.” —Justin Torres, author of We the Animals
