Annotation ""The first thing we did was change our names. We were going to be Sappho," so begins this intrepid debut novel, centuries after the Greek poet penned her lyric verse. Ignited by the same muse, a myriad of women break from their small, predetermined lives for seemingly disparate paths: in 1892, Rina Faccio trades her needlepoint for a pen; in 1902, Romaine Brooks sails for Capri with nothing but her clotted paintbrushes; and in 1923, Virginia Woolf writes: "I want to make life fuller and fuller." Writing in cascading vignettes, Selby Wynn Schwartz spins an invigorating tale of women whose narratives converge and splinter as they forge queer identities and claim the right to their own lives. A luminous meditation on creativity, education, and identity, After Sappho announces a writer as ingenious as the trailblazers of our past." -- Provided by publisher. -- Spanish language.
"En el jardín de Natalie Barney, en el París del cambio de siglo, un grupo de escritoras, artistas y activistas se dan cita para interpretar los versos de Safo. Las llaman amazonas, viragos, tríbadas e invertidas, y son algunas de las mujeres más fascinantes del siglo XX: Colette, Renee Vivien, Isadora Duncan, Romaine Brooks, Gertrude Stein, Radclyffe Hall, Eva Palmer o Lina Poletti. En Despues de Safo, como en el Orlando de Virginia Woolf, la realidad y la ficción se fusionan para trazar un puente que conecta las búsquedas, las resistencias y las reinvenciones de aquellas que, desde el siglo VII a. C. hasta hoy, han sido tocadas por el deseo de vivir y crear libremente. Una historia hecha de fragmentos de muchas historias, hilvanada por la prosa lírica de Selby Wynn Schwartz con la traducción de Aurora Luque (Premio Nacional de Poesía)." -- Proporcionada por la editorial. -- Traducido de la edición en inglés de 2022.
