Chantel Acevedo’s latest work of historical fiction, The Living Infinite, is based on the true story of the Spanish princess Eulalia, an outspoken firebrand at the Bourbon court during the troubled and decadent final years of her family’s reign. Cristina García‘s novel, Here in Berlin, is a portrait of a city through snapshots, an excavation of the stories and ghosts of contemporary Berlin—its complex, troubled past still pulsing in the air as it was during World War II. Pablo Medina is the translator of Alejo Carpentier’s The Kingdom of This World, a classic novel about the 19th Century rule of Haiti’s slave-king, Henri Christophe, whose oppression is observed through the eyes of the elderly slave Ti Noël.
