Un Nuevo Sol: British LatinX Writers is the first major anthology of UK-based writers of Latin American heritage, a vibrant, new vanguard in British literature. Representing a community that is the eighth biggest in
, one of the fastest growing and best educated, numbering over 200,000 nationally, the work featured here includes fiction, poetry and theatre that exhibits the stunning fluidity with which the writers inhabit their hybrid heritage.
This is a journey through imaginary lands, those other dimensions that lie undercover in our dreams and nightmares. As its author, the Colombian poet Sonia Quintero says: "This book is dedicated the the nightmares that are deeply hidden in my nights, under my pillow. The ones that wake me up, the ones that steel my sleep... Also dedicated to my mother, who taught me to transform the pain into art".
