A debut novel that tells the story of Rasa, a young gay man coming of age in the Middle East Set over the course of twenty-four hours, Guapa follows Rasa, a gay man living in an unnamed Arab country, as he tries to carve out a life for himself in the midst of political and social upheaval. Rasa spends his days translating for Western journalists and pining for the nights when he can sneak his lover, Taymour, into his room. One night Rasa's grandmother — the woman who raised him — catches them in bed together. The following day Rasa is consumed by the search for his best friend Maj, a fiery activist and drag queen star of the underground bar, Guapa, who has been arrested by the police. Ashamed to go home and face his grandmother, and reeling from the potential loss of the three most important people in his life, Rasa roams the city’s slums and prisons, the lavish weddings of the country’s elite, and the bars where outcasts and intellectuals drink to a long-lost revolution. Each new encounter leads him closer to confronting his own identity, as he revisits his childhood and probes the secrets that haunt his family. As Rasa confronts the simultaneous collapse of political hope and his closest personal relationships, he is forced to discover the roots of his alienation and try to re-emerge into a society that may never accept him.

The vibrant and beloved community of Eastvale was once an agrarian paradise. Developed initially as ranchlands, this area tucked along the Santa Ana River was transformed by industrious farmers who produced alfalfa and other crops, raised poultry and eventually thrived as dairymen. Eastvale's latest agents of change, however, weren't cattlemen or farmers but real estate agents. Indeed, land developers saw the same potential in Eastvale as the initial ranchers did. Beginning in the 1990s, developers created charming homes and planned neighborhoods for former city dwellers eager to live in Riverside County. Despite the changes, the bucolic ambiance of the bygone era remains. Authors Loren P. Meissner and Kim Jarrell Johnson recount the dynamic changes, important people and exciting events that created Eastvale.

This analytical history traces representations of flamenco dance in Spain and abroad from the twentieth century through the present, using flamenco histories, film appearances of flamenco, accounts of live performances, and interviews with practitioners to map the emergence of a global dance practice. Focusing on the stereotype of the dancing body as the site of political and social tensions, it places that image in an international dialogue between tourists, flamenco purists, dictators, poets, filmmakers, and dancers. After laying the groundwork for an analysis of flamenco historiography, the text delves into such topics as images of the female flamenco dancer in films by Luis Bunuel, Carlos Saura, and Antonio Gades; the lasting stereotypes of flamenco bodies and Andalusian culture originated in Prosper Merimees novella Carmen; and the ways in which contemporary flamenco dancers such as Belen Maya, Pastora Galvan, and Roco Molina negotiate the flamenco stereotype of Carmen as well as the return of an idealized Spanish feminine that pervades "traditional" flamenco. Informed by political and cultural theory as well as works in feminist and gender studies, this ambitious study illuminates the conflicting stories that compose the history of flamenco.

Nella drammatica vicenda umana del giovane Rasa l’omosessualità, repressa dai regimi dittatoriali e dai fondamentalisti islamici, diventa una chiave di lettura obbligata del mondo, un punto di vista privilegiato per smascherarne le ipocrisie e le contraddizioni. Il Guapa, il luogo di ritrovo dei deviati e degli esclusi, diventa il cuore stesso della città di Rasa, il simbolo della strada e della sua ribellione. Il romanzo che più illumina le dinamiche esistenziali e culturali della Primavera araba. Una capitale mediorientale percorsa dal fremito della Primavera araba. Rasa, un giovane omosessuale non dichiarato che vive con la dispotica nonna paterna Teta, di giorno lavora come interprete e di notte si divide tra il Guapa, un locale underground nel cui seminterrato si radunano clandestinamente i gay e le lesbiche della città, e il suo amante segreto, Taymour, che fa entrare nella propria camera da letto fino al giorno in cui la nonna li scopre. Intanto il suo miglior amico, Maj, star drag queen del Guapa, viene arrestato all’interno di un cinema. I due eventi fanno precipitare la situazione già fragile di Rasa, abbandonato dalla madre quando era bambino, emigrato più tardi in America, dove però non riesce a integrarsi e tornato alla solitudine e alla vergogna della convivenza con la nonna. Rasa s’interroga anche sulla breve, intensa stagione delle proteste di piazza, prima che la repressione del regime e la conseguente estremizzazione degli scontri portassero all’emergere del fondamentalismo islamico. In uno scontro diretto con Ahmed, un leader islamista della protesta, Rasa è costretto al silenzio di fronte all’invettiva di quest’ultimo contro gli omosessuali. Il matrimonio del suo amante Taymour con Leila, una ragazza della buona borghesia, fa esplodere definitivamente il precario equilibrio di Rasa. «Un romanzo che allarga lo sguardo con la delicatezza di una poesia e la brutalità di un apriscatole».
