Available in Spanish for the first time in the United States. From Rosario Ferré (nominated for the National Book Award for The House on the Lagoon), her first work of fiction, long out of print in any edition, in the original Spanish and including a previously unpublished story and two poems. Papeles de Pandora contains the stories that first brought Rosario Ferré to the attention of Spanish-language readers throughout the world. In this collection, Ferré introduces her major theme: the position of women in a fast-changing but still patriarchal culture. In "La muñeca menor"  ("The Youngest Doll"), a maiden aunt uses her skill at making honey-filled dolls to get revenge. "La bella durmiente" ("The Sleeping Beauty"), recounts the brief life of a young dancer through letters and newspaper clippings that reveal much more than they say. And in "Cuando las mujeres quieren a los hombres" ("When Women Love Men"), a society lady and a prostitute form a startling alliance after the death of the man they both loved.  Richly imagined, elegantly written, Ferré's stories are early proof of her stature among contemporary Latin American writers.

Rosario Ferre is a writer and educator. She was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, in 1938. Ferre attended Manhattanville College where she studied English literature. Ferre received a Ph.D. in Latin American literature from the University of Maryland, College Park. Upon graduation Ferre took up the cause of Puerto Rican independence. She began a teaching career as a professor of Latin American literature at the University of California, Berkeley, Rutgers University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras. Ferre began publishing the literary magazine, Loading and Unloading Zone. In 1977, Ferre published the first of her feminist manifestos, Papeles de Pandora. Ferre's first book in English, The House on the Lagoon, was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1995. Ferr� was a Guggenheim fellowship recipient in 2004.
