El resplandor de Luzbella - Juan López Bauzá


El Resplandor de Luzbella is a splendid narrative allegory from Puerto Rico. Even more, it is a brilliant novel which dissects the historical condition, political and economical development, and the rhythm of social life in the Latin American countries.

Luzbella is a mysterious island to the East of the Caribbean Sea. Aside from its inhabitants, of whom very little is known, no one has ever set foot there. However, rumor has it that it is known for its economical prosperity, political stability, and its climate of peace. Thus, when the Puerto Rican journalist Roberto Quesada is invited to the island to interview for the first time its enigmatic president, Uriel Sánchez, questions begin to pile up. Which secrets does this enigmatic place hold? What is its real history? How has it remained hidden for such a long time?

With an intelligent and agile prose, Juan López Bauzá has managed to build a unique universe, a deeply revealing story about the possibilities of a more just reality.

After the passage of the devastating hurricane Maria on the island, many Puerto Ricans were affected and still suffer the consequences of the historic atmospheric phenomenon. Thousands lost their home, their business, and even hope in a Puerto Rico capable of giving them a promising future. According to the Center for Puerto Rican Studies, by the year 2016 there were 5.5 million Puerto Ricans outside the island and it is estimated that in the next two years some 470,000 will be added to the massive population exodus from our homeland.

Despite the high rate of emigration, most of the emigrants miss their land, their customs and try everything possible to keep the culture alive from generation to generation. That is why the idea of Books 787 arises; a completely online store dedicated to the sale of books of Puerto Rican authorship.
