Inhaltsangabe: Living at Night is a troubling view of the indignities and neglect inflicted on disabled and old people by those who are caring for them. It is, however, also a story of hope and redemption__ of how one woman's compassion can make a small but essential difference in the lives of those whom society would rather forget. And how much those removed from the cares of the outside world can teach us about life and the value of human connections.
This stunning debut novel from Mariana Romo-Carmona draws us into the world of Erica García-- a young, working class Puerto Rican lesbian searching for her place in the world... Though Erica comes to realize that she may not be able to change the world, she can indeed take charge of her own life.
Rezension: This first novel by Mariana Romo-Carmona tells the story of Erica Garcia, a Puerto Rican American lesbian who works at an institution for the developmentally disabled in New England. The traditionally shaped, realist narrative describes a young working-class woman's struggles to keep her love life, her political consciousness, and her demanding, underpaid job afloat despite the obstacles. Garcia, who often gets called Gracia by mistake, also has to hold her own as one of few women of color in a mostly white community. By the end of Living at Night, Garcia has learned more about romantic love, the loyalty of friends, and the powerful, unspoken wisdom of the disabled than she ever expected to.
