Abstract: 
Piv and Robin are not such an unlikely match. Piv, a small-time hustler in Thailand, and Robin, a twenty-something back-packer from the United States, have always dreamed big dreams. What begins as a traveler’s affair in Sukhothai quickly intensifies, and the young lovers envision an idyllic future together, traveling the world. Their plans are thwarted in Bangkok, however, when Robin runs out of money, her credit is denied, and she may have to leave Asia and Piv behind. Desperate, Piv turns to Abu, a charismatic businessman acquaintance, for help. Thus begins Piv and Robin’s foray intoexotic animal smuggling. Soon they find themselves amid an international crime ring that may have even darker underworld ties stretching from Kenya to Russia. Under the scrutiny of the traffickers who employ them, with investigators hot on their trail, and idealistic dreams unraveling fast, Piv and Robin must face the consequences of their individual struggles for identity, as well as the cost of their mutual desires.

Our Dolphin

Book, Allegretti
Date: 
2016
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
"Enough water and waves and you get smoothed coral. Enough poetry and sun and you get Joel Allegretti's new novella, Our Dolphin - a fairytale less Grimm than hymn to a de Chirico landscape sliced into heat waves. The main character is a curiously disfigured lad who - in his despair - allows a tragic magic world to enter his heart." - Taken from Ron Dakron's review on the back cover.

Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
"La variedad es una de las características de Vocesueltas, variedad que encontramos tanto en el origen de los autores, que va de México a la Argentina, como en la temática, los asuntos tratados y los estilos. A partir de los ochenta el Medioeste, y principalmente Chicago, se ha convertido en otra de las regiones productoras de literatura en español. Es en Chicago precisamente donde un grupo de escritores lanzan esta antología de cuentos, que mucho prestigio ha de dar tanto a los autores y a la literatura en español de esa metrópolis como al español que se escribe en los Estados Unidos." *
