el mundo secreto de la castigada

Soy la castigada. I pray for deliverance in the last pew of the emptied church, my palms shaking with remembered concupiscence. The rest of the time, I wait tables at a greasy spoon. I am dueña of the downcast face, the visage los hombres know but cannot quite place. Don't order the pie.

My favorite music:

Juanita Reina

Pride and Prejudice
comments:  The Colin Firth version, claro! This is a cheap, if time-consuming analgesic.

John Barth
comments:  Metafiction with a heart of gold.
A.S. Byatt
comments:  Runs circles around her sister Margaret.
