This overwhelming novel, which enshrines Rita Indiana as narrator, contains many layers and fascinating twists. The story begins in the apartment of saint and advisor to the Dominican President, Esther Escudero, better known as Omicunlé. His young maid, Alcide Figueroa, whom Esther helped leave a life of prostitution, is about to become plagued by the past, present and future. Including deities that inhabit the Caribbean Sea, political interests, Goya's prints, gender reassignment and numerous plot twists, few other works of fiction speak  of contemporary art as precisely as La mucama de omicunlé.
