La India, or Island of the Disappeared

The stories are a wonderful weave of history and imagination, showing Rosario Cruz-Lucero’s expertise with language and narrative structure. Wit, irony, and humor emanate from her style—a combination of magic realism and surrealism—which renders the reading of the stories a pleasurable experience. There is a pervading linkage between the stories, some invented “historical” relationship of characters and plot, through which a main central narrative emerges. — Dr. Cirilo F. Bautista, poet, fictionist, and professor emeritus of De La Salle University
