We stand in solidarity with the uprising unfolding across the country following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Nina Pop, Jamel Floyd, and those affected by generations of structural violence against Black communities.

We're putting together a list of resources for self-education, mutual aid, and ongoing action in the struggle for racial justice.

The Brooklyn Rail recommends…


Daniel Chavarría, Adios Muchachos (Akashic Books, 2001), $13.95 paperback.

 

A salacious, gender-bending story about a Havana “bicycle hooker” named Alicia, who’s got more curves than J-Lo and an even savvier business sense. The prolific and perverse Uruguayan writer Chavarría, here translated into English for the first time, delivers a brilliantly comic, never sentimental parable about the real meaning of free trade.

 

Una historia lujuriosa y sexualmente torcida acerca de una “prostituta bicicletera” llamada Alicia, más curvilinea que Jennifer López y con un astuto sentido para los negocios. El perverso y prolífico escritor uruguayo Chavarría, traducido al ingles por vez primera con esta obra, nos entrega una brillante y nada sentimental parabola cómica acerca del verdadero sentido del libre comercio.
