Called “one of the most revolutionary voices in Latin America today” by PEN, Giannina Braschi creates linguistic and structural hybrids of poetry, fiction, essay, musical, manifesto, treatise, and drama. She is the cutting-edge author of the postmodern poetry trilogy El imperio de los sueños / Empire of Dreams; the experimental Spanglish novel Yo-Yo Boing!; and a philosophical work of dramatic fiction, United States of Banana. Born in Puerto Rico, she lives in New York.
