A girl waits for her father, a Dominican mobster whom she idolizes and who always shows up without warning. All throughout her life her daddy appears, disappears, and reappears, laden with money and an endless supply of cars, girlfriends, and presents. Narrated by this young girl as she awaits the return of her daddy, this urban novel is as moving as it is illuminating regarding Caribbean culture and the world of organized crime.

Una niña espera a su padre, un mafioso dominicano al que idolatra y quien siempre llega sin avisar. A lo largo de toda su vida su papi aparece, desaparece y reaparece, cargado de dólares y un sinfín de coches, novias y regalos. Narrada por esta niña joven mientras espera el regreso de su papi, esta novela urbana es tanto estremecedora como reveladora acerca de la cultura caribeña y el mundo del crimen organizado.
Rita Indiana is a Dominican-born Puerto Rican novelist and short story writer. Her previous works include Ciencia succión, La estrategia de Chochueca, and Rumiantes.
