Cobra by Severo Sarduy

D176792E-1493-4993-90A7-C18A981C9EEDBook set in Cuba (to some extent!). Reviewed on 2020/02: https://www.instagram.com/p/B84NkEGANeM/

#cobra by #severosarduy is the literary version of a #psychedelic dream. The text and the story both never cease to #transform themselves. Cobra and her #dragqueen friends are transforming and #transgressing their stories. The story transforms them. The places also get transformed while you read in a constant state of movement and merging. The reader as #transvestite , the transvestite as the perfect #shapeshifter to seek truth through deception. Transforming and allowing yourself to take on a mask and live a different reality in order to see a part of the real you. Cobra shows precisely why #dragqueens are subversive: a deliciously grotesque transformation throwing in our faces the fallacies of our so-called settled identities and selves. This is definitely a strong contender for my #bestbookofthemonth . #highlyrecommended #cubanliterature #maitreya #suzannejilllevine #dalkeyarchivepress #paris #tangiers #buddhism #lyricaltheaterofdolls
