Las Memorias Vacías de Solange Bañuelos [The Empty Memories of Solange Bañuelos].

Matanzas, Cuba: Ediciones Vigía, 2014. Hernández-Lorenzo, Maité. Small octavo. 58pp. One of 200 copies. Illustrated in paper collage and hand-colored drawings, all incorporating traditional feminine imagery—nude female figures and items of makeup—into uncomfortable or disorienting scenes. The disillusionment finds ground in Maité Hernández-Lorenzo’s seventeen stories and vignettes, in which she describes the daily disrespect, discrimination, and violence she faces because of her womanhood. A challenging, concise, feminist production. Bound in collaged wrappers, and housed in a cloth-covered paper sleeve designed to look like a clutch purse. Sleeve shows minor spotting. Near fine. Item #30301
