“Your story is very good; the atmosphere of the café with the gays, the writers and Paris in the rain is very well constructed. It left me wanting to know more about such complex characters””.
Edmundo Paz Soldán, Bolivian writer
INTERNATIONAL SHORT STORY PRIZE “CASA DE TEATRO”, REPÚBLICA DOMINICANA, 2002
By rescuing Cortázar’s point of view toward exile, three young writers of the First Word and four transvestites meet up again in the Paris of the Nineties, with new traces and consequences of the trauma that European exile signifies for Latin Americans. A homage to the great Cortázar that is, at the same time, a re-evaluation of themes like banishment, cosmopolitan culture and death.
With this work the author won the International Short Story Prize “Casa de Teatro” 2002. Juried by Ligia Minaya, Arturo Rodríguez and Armando Almánzar.
