Summary
  • Es septiembre de 2017 y el hurac̀n Mar̕a acaba de arrasar con Puerto Rico. Camila se siente perturbada por la muerte de su hermana, Marisol. Todo empez̤ cuando le arranc̤ un pedacito, el męique que sobresal̕a del fango, tras el deslizamiento de tierra que se la llev̤. Incapaz de desprenderse de ella, Camila carga con su cuerpo hasta llegar al supuesto para̕so perdido llamado ±Memoria<U+00bb>. Urayòn, el profeta sǫador pero peligroso de Memoria, tiene planes para su nueva sociedad: aspira a un nuevo orden tras el abandono del Gobierno. El para̕so que predica seduce a j̤venes de toda la isla, entre ellos a Pescao, Moriviv̕ y Banto. Todos ellos tendr̀n que navegar el ascenso entre llamas del tirano Urayòn y enfrentarse a sus impulsos macabros para poder reclamar su hogar, una isla estremecida tanto por el paso impetuoso de Mar̕a como por la violencia humana. Velorio es la ansiada y desgarradora novela poshurac̀n que despierta nuestros miedos m̀s profundos, pero que apela tambǐn a la voluntad y la fuerza de todo un pueblo a la hora de enfrentarnos a los corruptos en poder. --Back cover
  • "Camila is haunted by the death of her sister, Marisol, who was caught by a mudslide during the huracaan. Unable to part with Marisol, Camila carries her through town, past the churchyard, and, eventually, to the supposed utopia of Memoria. Urayoaan, the idealistic, yet troubled cult leader of Memoria, has a vision for this new society, one that in his eyes is peaceful and democratic. The paradise he preaches lures in the young, including Bayfish, a boy on the cusp of manhood, and Morivivi, a woman whoseoutward toughness belies an inner tenderness for her friends. But as the different members of Memoria navigate Urayoaan's fiery rise, they will need to confront his violent authoritarian impulses in order to find a way to reclaim their home. Velorio-meaning "wake"-is a story of strength, resilience, and hope; a tale of peril and possibility buoyed by the deeply held belief in a people's ability to unite against those corrupted by power"--
