Yo A Novel review ☆ 105 Obsessed by human stories Latina novelist Yolanda Garcia has managed to put herself at the center of many lives Thrice married she's also managed to remain childless while giving very public birth to her highly autobiographical writing She's famous for it Now her characters want a chance to tell their side of it And tell it t. What did he and this lady think That money could buy the only thing the poor could have for free their own children 255Emerging as an actual very bright very original very nostalgi romanti storic A bona fide portrait of a woman with many haters and lovers a writer one easily begins to think is Alvarez herself Also that she s written to my knowledge since I still have some exploring of her entire body of work at least 3 novels about 4 sisters about the table that reuires sturdy legs as much as a good novel necessitates glimmers of humor and pathos and original voices all masters of their section all ingeniously and aptly titled This book is about what happens when instead of uiet and complacent angels the Garcia sisters become fiery and disobedient a theme I ve encountered in her two books Ive read previously In the Time of the Butterflies and her most recent AfterlifeThis is up there with Olive Kitteridge but strikes louder with me as I knew a couple of fabulous people from the DR whose voice I remember upon reading this When the characters return in a different characters anecdote or section or chapter it truly is a joyous occasion The title of the novel is insistent upon itself it is an ode to the sister or it could be us MEYO The inverted exclamation point is uniuely Spanish it is also a greeting between two friends Love her or hate her Yolanda Garcia sure does make an impression and yet has no time of her own in the narrative splashes impressions

Yo A Novel review ☆ 105 T what happens when an author really does write what she knows At once funny and poignant intellectual and gossipy lighthearted and layered in meaning Yo is above all the portrait of an artist And with its bright colors passion and penchant for controversy it's a portrait that could come only from the palette of Julia Alvarez. Yolanda Garcia or Yo has just released a new book that has triggered a lot of angry reactions in her family Even though Yo claims that it is fiction each family member can identify themselves in some character of the book They are frustrated understandably because their friends and acuaintances keep asking them which character represents them Yo s mother is threatening to sue her while her sisters are refusing to talk to her Yo cannot understand why her family is reacting as such and she keeps insisting that her book is fiction Since her family members and sundry other people she knows are unable to do anything but rail at their portrayal in the so called fictional story they each get a chance to redeem themselves by telling their story and saying exactly what they think of YoThis is one of the most uniue books I ve ever read I started reading it in Denver when I missed my flight and was stuck at the airport for than 12 hours It was a good thing that I had just the perfect read to tide me over Yo is divided into 16 chapters each chapter written from the perspective of a different person not all family members At the outset it seems strange that a particular person may even be associated with someone vibrant and so full of life as Yo but the connection soon becomes evident halfway through that chapter While some of the characters talk all about Yo and their relationship and how Yo influenced their lives others talk about their own lives with Yo making a guest appearance As I kept reading the book and entered the lives of different people I began to get curious about how Yo was going to make her appearance in that chapter as a savior or as a person to keep away fromSome of the characters who have their own chapters include close family members such as a sister a cousin her mother and her father But in addition there are other prominent characters such as an ex lover a maid s daughter a landlady a student and a stalker Not all the narrators know that they might have been caricatured in Yo s book but they all have things to tell about Yo s life and writing habits Despite the changing narrator I never found the flow of the novel to be disruptive it actually works really well for this bookSince all we had was the family s word at the start of the book that Yo fictionally victimized them we get to form our own judgement through the stories shared by the characters And though we never have Yo making a direct appearance other than in the narratives of other characters the author still manages to create a rich and vivid person in Yo From a young age Yo was witty and stubborn She also loved writing stories about the people she knew She had gotten into plenty of trouble for telling tales some of which could have almost gotten her family into danger in war torn Dominican Republic where she grew upThe book reads like a series of short stories than a complete book Intertwined with each character s reminiscence of their relationship with Yo are snippets of their own life as if they were caught in the middle of a household chore to sit in front of the interviewer I loved how these little characters came to life and how no one appeared one dimensional The stories are in no particular chronological order Although I wasn t initially sure of how things fell into place time wise before soon I had a vague timeline in place It is not until we reach almost two thirds of the book that we really hear one person s experience of reading one of her books Until then I wasn t sure if Yo was just inspired by the stories in her life or whether there was to itI have to admit that I was getting tired halfway through reading so much about one person across 300 pages did wear me down a bit but I m glad that the focus on Yo s character shifts every few chapters so that we don t hear the same thing over and over Mostly I m impressed that you can write 300 pages about anyone in fiction and without a plot The whole story is set up for the reader to decide what they think of Yo almost like a court case The reader is the judge and the various characters with their own chapters are the witnesses I loved the whole concept and taking a stand on whether Yo did the right thing or not was not straightforward by the end of the book I learned so much about Yo that I could only form an opinion but not slam the gavel Overall I truly enjoyed this very different read and am eager to read of Julia Alvarez s work

Yo A Novel review ☆ 105 Hey do Everybody who's ever been caught in Yo's web from her sisters to her third husband can hardly wait to talk The stories they tell on celebrated writer Yolanda Garcia known to her intimates as Yo deliver delicious insight into the very nature of artistic creation and the material from which it is built Yo is a novel abou. I enjoyed this book for all of its energy and contradicting stories but thought it kinda jumped off the rails in the final fifty pages or so There are so many characters and perspectives that I started to lose track of who was who and then there s some inspired but confusing stream of consciousness chapters at the end that lost me completely It s almost as if she is too good at writing different characters and it holds back some of the potential in a smaller cast One student in particular has ten pages just to offer one somewhat redundant glimpse into Yolanda s character It s well written and insightful but then he s gone for the rest of the book But man Alvarez can write Lovely sentences and great characters I m a big fan Looking forward to reading her other books
