High Spirits

April 5

High Spirits by Camille Gomera-TavarezDark background with many images all around the edges of the cover. A slender moon and stars are up in the corner. There are many plants and trees and a few animals like a rooster and lizard. There are also two red demons up in the sky. A few buildings are also visible.

High Spirits is a collection of eleven interconnected short stories from the Dominican diaspora, from debut author Camille Gomera-Tavarez. It is a book centered on one extended family the BelĂ©ns across multiple generations. It is set in the fictional small town of Hidalpa and Santo Domingo and Paterson and San Juan and Washington Heights too. It is told in a style both utterly real and distinctly magical and its stories explore machismo, mental health, family, and identity. But most of all, High Spirits represents the first book from Camille Gomera-Tavarez, who takes her place as one of the most extraordinary new voices to emerge in years. –Cover image and summary via Goodreads
