We are proud to announce that Junot Diaz has written a great blurb on Call Me Cassandra by our Cuban author Marcial Gala:

“A spellbinding novel by one of the best writers of the Americas. Call Me Cassandra is Marcial Gala’s masterpiece, blending Greek myth with the Cuban intervention in Angola. At the heart of this incandescent tale burns sensitive Rauli, caught between the Gods and the Revolution, between a body that he longs to escape and a world that lets no one like him escape. Call Me Cassandra is Chronicle of a Death Foretold but blacker and brilliantly better.”

The novel will be published at Farrar, Straus and Giroux in January 2022.
