This book devotes one chapter to

Himilce Novas’ novel, PRINCESS PAPAYA

http://www.amazon.com/dp/0813561175/ref=rdr_ext_tmb

From book reviews of Troubling Nationhood:

Project Muse

“In chapter five, the author applies the same theoretical framework to the novel Princess Papaya (2004), written by the Cuban American Himilce Novas, and arrives at somewhat similar conclusions. Nevertheless, Socolovsky points out that Novas’ fictional narrative “represents a model of syncretism and collectivity” (159) that is becoming intrinsically woven into the social and cultural tapestry of the United States, a positive shift that reimagines a consciousness of ethnic minority citizens as healthy contributors to the cultural landscape of the United States. In the final chapter, Socolovsky reminds the reader of the important role that Latina/o literary production has in reframing issues of belonging and unbelonging in the national political arena. In this sense, Socolovsky’s literary and cultural analysis is a significant contribution to the studies of Latina feminist literature...”

The American Literatures Initiative

“Looking at such concerns as nation, place, trauma, and storytelling, writers Denise Chavez, Sandra Cisneros, Esmeralda Santiago, Ana Castillo, Himilce Novas, and Judith Ortiz Cofer challenge popular views of Latino cultural “unbelonging” and make strong cases for the legitimate presence of Latinas/os within the United States. In this way, they also counter much of today’s anti-immigration rhetoric…”
