General Note
Translation of: La mucama de Omicunlé.
Description
"Plucked from her life on the streets of post-apocalyptic Santo Domingo, young maid Acilde Figueroa finds herself at the heart of a Santeria prophecy: only she can travel back in time and save the ocean and humanity from disaster. But first she must become the man she always was with the help of a sacred anemone. Tentacle is an electric novel with a big appetite and a brave vision, plunging headfirst into questions of climate change, technology, Yoruba ritual, queer politics, poverty, sex, colonialism and contemporary art. Bursting with punk energy and lyricism, its a restless, addictive trip: The Tempest meets the telenovela."--Back cover.
