“The Pain of Reading” New York Times opinion piece by Luis Negron

October 8, 2012

Luis Negron shares deeply personal tales in his upcoming collection of short stories, called Mundo Cruel, coming out in February 2013. 

In Sunday’s New York Times opinion pages Luis shares a beautiful and heartbreaking story about his experiences growing up in an impoverished family in Puerto Rico and the reaction of his parents when he tries to share his joy of reading Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.

The Op-Ed piece and the collection of stories is translated by Suzanne Jill Levine, a winner of the PEN America Translation Award.
