Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 840242046X, Paperback)

Celia Sanchez, Albis Torres y Nadia Guerra, los tres personajes femeninos en que se centra la novela, no solo pertenecen a esa estirpe de protagonistas que se instalan para siempre en la memoria del lector, sino que, ademas, trenzan con sus peripecias existenciales la historia, con minuscula, de la vida cubana desde el triunfo de la Revolucion hasta hoy. La historica, pero casi olvidada figura de Celia Snachez, emblematica encarnacion de la lucha revolucionaria; Albis Torres, malograda escritora, personaje esencial de la bohemia artistica de la posrevolucion, y tambien victima de la desmemoria, inspiran el gran potencial creativo de la autora, quien las hace revivir en la palabra y la incorreccion de Nadia Guerra, exponente de la joven generacion de una sociedad que lucha por ganar la partida al olvido y al inmovilismo. Con una vitalidad desbordante, con pasion irrefrenable, con valentia y lucidez, Wendy Guerra, autora de Todos se van (I Premio Bruguera 2006 otorgado por Eduardo Mendoza en calidad de jurado unico), auna autobiografia y ficcion en una novela deslumbrante, emotiva, que rebosa libertad, ironia, sentido del humor, y ternura. Con Nunca fui primera dama, Wendy Guerra se confirma como uno de los valores del nuevo boom de la literatura latinoamericana.
