Synopsis : Loverboys is the eagerly awaited new book by Ana Castillo, the acclaimed author of So Far from God: a collection of stories that display her unique perspective on the joys and sorrows of love. Here is the experience of love captured in its wildly varying modes, from rapturous beginnings to melancholy middles to bittersweet ends, and in its equally varying configurations - man and woman, man and man, woman and woman. From the infectious moodiness of "Loverboys" to the high comic spirits of "La Miss Rose" the murderously funny gender-war payback of "Vatolandia, " Castillo covers the waterfront of contemporary romance.
Critique: A collection of short stories about the seductive, vibrant, often defiant lives of lovers, not all of them boys. In "La Ronde," women fall for women, for men, for both, and explore the complex extension of this love in their own families. In "Vatolandia," an independent-minded woman creates a critical system in which to classify the men she dates. And in the title story a woman muses at the hypocrisy of life while mourning the departure of her latest boyfriend over drinks in a gay bar. Though the women in these stories have their fair share of heartache, they refuse to be victims. As they face their challenges head-on, they unknowingly shape their own destinies.
