Reverberating Voices (Paperback)
Reverberating Voices, speaks about the Central American diaspora-- multiple voices retelling Garay's personal history and the histories of others--the various oppression: political persecution, racism, class, and gender inequities, etc. Diasporic oppression is experienced on both sides of the US-Mexican border by both Salvadorans and Nicaraguans during the Salvadoran civil war and Nicaraguan Revolution in the 1980s. Although Reverberating Voices represents the oppressive struggles suffered by Central Americans in the US and in their homeland, its characters speak as heterogeneous subjects of history, speaking collectively about their histories of Diaspora and love. Also, Reverberating Voices will fill a void in the United States because stories about the Central America-Latino Diaspora are for the most part underrepresented within the US Latino Literary canon.
