Mariquita loves big, old Russian novels, but who has the time? And, frankly, haven’t we all already read those? (I still love them!) The answer is obviously incredibly rich, beautifully surreal short stories written by Latinx women. Stories that feature strong, flawed, fully-realized characters. Mariquita talks about three collections that she’s really enjoyed, and urges you to check them out, too.
Her Body and Other Stories by Carmen Maria Machado, In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado, Sabrina and Corina by Kali Fajardo-Anstine, Eat the Mouth that Feeds You by Carribean Fragoza
