There, Cuban expats view her with suspicion--assuming she's an informant for the Castro regime. To Cleo's surprise, that suspicion follows her home to Cuba, where she finds herself under constant surveillance by the government. When she meets and falls in love with a Hollywood filmmaker, she discovers her family is not who she thought they were . . . and neither is the filmmaker.
Editorial ReviewRadical... Revolution Sunday is about creating art under surveillance, and about our homelands' inescapable pull... Guerra is a fearless writer, and she's lucky to have a fearless translator [in Achy Obejas]. Together, they make Revolution Sunday more vivid than life.--Lily Meyer, NPR "[A] Kafkaesque art thriller... Havana's slow political thaw brings new texture and urgency to the genre of political paranoia."--NYMAG.COM / VULTURE "Sensual, atmospheric" --Jane Ciabattari, BBC.com "Guerra brings in her knowledge of media and storytelling, creating a rich backdrop before which this narrative unfolds."--VOL. 1 BROOKLYN "Fascinating...it's eye-opening in more ways than one."--ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
About the AuthorWENDY GUERRA (Havana, 1970) is a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres and was selected for Bogotá 39, the prestigious group of writers from the Hay Bogotá project. In 2015 and 2016, she was a visiting professor at Princeton and UCLA. From an early age, she found success as a poet, publishing her first volume of poetry aged 17 whilst attending the University of Havana. She later pursued studies in filmmaking and hosted a number of TV shows about culture and television on the national Cuban broadcaster. She began to circulate and publish her texts abroad, to great critical acclaim. As a result of this success, she has been considered with suspicion by Cuban intelligence services and has remained largely unpublished in her native country. Drawing inspiration from her diaries and also from the visual arts, her texts often combine filmic, personal and poetic elements.ACHY OBEJAS is an award-winning translator and author of the critically acclaimed novels RUINS and DAYS OF AWE. She is director of the MFA in Translation program at Mills College in Oakland, CA.
