Behind the Stars, More Stars : The Tagus / Disquiet Collection of New Luso-American Writing Paperback / softback

Edited by Christopher Larkosh, Oona Patrick

Part of the Portuguese in the Americas Series series

Description

Presenting experimental and boundary-breaking prose from women, people of color, and LGBTQ writers, Behind the Stars, More Stars imagines a more diverse and inclusive Luso-American and Portuguese-American literary scene, which has traditionally been dominated by male voices.

Since its first ""Writing the Luso Experience"" workshops were held in 2011, Dzanc Books's Disquiet International Literary Program in Lisbon has aimed to break silences within today's Luso-American communities.

Disquiet faculty Katherine Vaz and Frank X. Gaspar appear alongside up-and-coming writers from the workshops, such as Traci Brimhall, Megan Fernandes, Hugo Dos Santos, and previously unpublished women writers.
