As the cold echoes of the twentieth century die out and the world advances toward an uncertain future, Daniel Gargallo revisits the complacency of the Obama years in She Beyond Sun, his debut novel. At the fore of a new generation of young Hispanic-American authors, Gargallo tells the story of slacker-turned-inventor Carlos Vega’s half-hearted attempt to save his failing hologram business by selling out to a brutal dictator. Meanwhile, Carlos is haunted by his former lover, who sends him “care packages” from exotic locations around the world, as he desperately searches for new romance to replace her. Exploring modern relationships and the role of technology in our lives, She Beyond Sun is as funny as it is moving, as insightful as it is sensual, and as entertaining as it is essential.—Google
