Description: As he has done in his previously acclaimed works, Oscar Hijuelos vividly brings to life the joys, desires, and disappointments of American life, this time witnessed through the experience of a formerly prosperous Cuban emigre named Lydia Espana -- now a cleaning woman on New York's Upper West Side. In magnetic prose, Hijuelos juxtaposes Lydia's tale with the stories of her clients, contrasting her experiences with the secret lives of those for whom she works. A master of eloquent detail, no one writes better of love or the pulse of a city, nor has any writer better captured the complexity inherent in the emigration experience -- how assimilation is at once the achievement of dreams, yet also a loss of the past. Empress of the Splendid Season is Hijuelos at his masterful best.
