    Puerto Rican author Luis Negrón will be speaking about his debut collection of short stories, Mundo Cruel,  with Alan West-Durán, Director of the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program at Northeastern University, at La Galeria at the Villa Victoria Center for the Arts on Thursday, April 4th at 7pm.

    “Hilarious and heart-wrenching, provocative and pitch-perfect, each story is a tiny, transgressive explosion. I feel inadequate to the task of expressing just how wonderful this book is…read it slowly, and listen close; here is a master storyteller at his finest.”—Justin Torres, author of We The Animals

    Puerto Rican author Luis Negrón brings his impeccable ear for dialog to English readers with his debut collection of short stories, Mundo Cruel, capturing the rhythms of daily life in a community in Puerto Rico as well as the longing, abuse, and isolation faced by the marginalized gay subculture.
