PRLog - Jun. 5, 2012 - BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- Brooklyn, NY – June 5, 2012 – “Remembrance of Dingbats”, a cultural heritage memoirs from Latina author Kali Amanda Browne, is a 140-page experiment in form. In it, Ms. Browne plays with the genre and presents stories from her journals, memories in the form of dreams and poems, and fictionalizes a couple of incidents (in one to protect the guilty and in the other to combine two stories overheard).
Abridge and told in a non-linear fashion, the book takes the writer’s memories back and forth between her life in the United States and growing up in Puerto Rico – from her first tropical hurricane, to learning the Spanish word for ant, to an evening of music with B.B. King, to watching a sunset in Cape Cod and visiting her local basilica in Brooklyn.
Each story is told with some humor and a clinical attention to detail. The collection combines four previously published e-books including: “One Night with B.B.”, “Life, Dreams, and Magical Landscapes”, “Putting May to Rest”, and “La Chancleta” – the last a bilingual story about a Latina mother and her rebellious teenage daughter.
“Remembrance of Dingbats” is available at Amazon.
