Reviews - What do customers think about Milagro En Miami?
Miami is a Miracle! Dec 27, 2001
A sweet and sour combination of fun and tragedy, of sick humor and light reading, a 90 % of fantastic tales with a 10% of real historical background. One thing I surely loved: Zoé continues to spice her writing with colloquialisms, vulgarisms and Cubanisms and that makes one want to read more from her. The miracle in her book happens in and to Miami, but the fact of the matter is that Miami has been a true miracle in the USA: a place where Cuban immigrants have turned an obscure, marshy land-ridden spot in the United States into one of the most flourishing economic places and melting pots in the whole world. Zoé develops her story for the first time in the second homeland of all Cubans: South Florida, specifically Miami [although she prefers to live in France] and the result is quite good. The puns with the names reminds one of Cabrera Infante. The whole story knitting is just hers.
