Publisher's Summary

El Vendedor de Suenos evoca las tribulaciones de Chino, un joven del Harlem hispano en busca del amor, de reafirmacion de identidad. Su relacion con Bodega, un capo magnanimo, un bandido generoso, lo sumerge en un mundo de intrigas y violencia.


In a stunning narrative combining the gritty rhythms of Junot Diaz with the noir genius of Walter Mosley, Bodega Dreams announces the arrival of a writer who The Village Voice has already hailed as "a Writer on the Verge". Lyric, inspired, and darkly funny, this powerful debut novel brilliantly evokes the trial of Chino, a smart, promising young man to whom Bodega turns for a favor.

"Esta estimulante primera obra de Quinonez es la novela que East Harlem habia estado esperando desde los dias de los Young Lords...una obra aguda y sugestiva." Publishers Weekly
