THIS YEAR’S SELECTED TITLES by EDIE AYALA

Author Edie Ayala invents quirky characters who transport us through twisting plots of little-known places. She writes character-driven stories about people who are marginalized or disregarded, who are intriguing and foreign, characters, who, one way or another, haunt us long after we’ve put the book down. Her books are sprinkled with magic realism and humor, and underlying each story are social and cultural questions that are begging for discussion.
