Publisher Comments:

Juani Casas is obsessed with memory. Having escaped from Cuba to the United States with her irresistibly imperfect family, she is fixated on extracting the truth of her life from the nostalgic mythology of exile. Surrounded by a chorus of cousins — blood cousins and "cousins in exile" — Juani, a 24-year-old lesbian, struggles with violence, desire, and the meaning of love.

Synopsis:

A brilliant new novel by the author of We Came All the Way from Cuba So You Could Dress Like This? Juani, a 24-year-old Latina lesbian, is exiled, with her irresistibly crazy family, from Cuba to the United States. Here a chorus of cousins--blood cousins and "cousins in exile"--wreak havoc as Juani attempts to sift through layers of memories and family myth to find the truth about her life.
