Through memoir chronicling a particular period of writing, Pineda documents the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, supporting it with oral histories by some of its survivors. The receding echoes of their voices prompt her as she creates song for a lost village, “Like Snow Melting in Water.” Based on a true story, her work for theater marks the life and death of a rice-growing village bordering the Sea of Japan. Pineda is known for both mold-breaking fiction and urgent environmental writing.
“Writers, readers, teachers, and creative writing classes, take note: Cecile Pineda is an American original, a literary treasure…. Her prodigiously inventive and important work…deserves a place in the forefront of American literature.”
“Cecile Pineda is a writer of the utmost artistic integrity.”
“With characteristic brio, Cecile Pineda has twisted three strands of imagination, scholarship, and spectacle into one strong thread, leading us through a wild and watery labyrinth of the creative process and out again, emboldened and very much wiser for having made the journey. Brava!”
