AUTHOR BIO
High Spirits is a collection of eleven interconnected short stories from the Dominican diaspora, from debut author Camille Gomera-Tavarez. 

It is a book centered on one extended family – the Beléns – across multiple generations. 

It is set in the fictional small town of Hidalpa – and Santo Domingo and Paterson and San Juan and Washington Heights too. 

It is told in a style both utterly real and distinctly magical – and its stories explore machismo, mental health, family, and identity. 

But most of all, High Spirits represents the first book from Camille Gomera-Tavarez, who takes her place as one of the most extraordinary new voices to emerge in years.
