At the beginning of November Daniel José Older released his book “The Book of Lost Saints.”
At the heart of the book is the story of Marisol. She disappeared almost without a trace during the Cuban Revolution. Now her spirit, shaped by long-forgotten atrocities, visits her nephew, Ramón, who lives in modern-day New Jersey.
What does Marisol’s spirit want? Well, she hopes that her presence will urge Ramón to discover their painful family history. Unaware of the forces driving him on his search, Ramón launches an investigation into the story of his ancestors. What will he find out?
