From the author of The Lazarus Rumba (a€œHis symphonic imagination proves mesmerizing.a€ a€”New York Times Book Review; a€œWonderful.a€ a€”Los Angeles Times), an inventive, poignant new novel. One night in April, Ašnica Aveyano sneaks out of her Miami nursing home and wanders toward the sea. Whether she intends to end her life or simply look at the ocean depends on whom you believe. She leaves behind her husband, a devoted nurse, the solicitude of her familya€”and the images of a little boy named EliAin Gonzalez that are all over the news. Her rash decision sets in motion a gorgeously told tale that is at once comedy and elegy. Every lived moment evokes for Ašnica a story from her past, and we live that past with her: from the ghosts of her mother and stepfather in 1930s GuantAinamo, and her beloved but wayward son, who refused to leave Cuba with the rest of the family, to her exile in Miami and New York City. A chronicle of the familiar and the strange, of madness and clarity, of the ambivalence of home and family, The Second Death of Ašnica Aveyano reveals unforgettably an indomitable woman whose entire life now seems a dress rehearsal for the heady days before her death.
