- We can order this from the publisher
This study examines Zayas's prose through a gynocentric lens. Drawing on an extensive array of primary and secondary sources, and referring to the ideas of Irigaray, Kristeva, Cixous, Raymond and Genette, O'Brien reflects on the interactions of Zayas's women in such relationships as friendship, sisterhood, and motherhood, analyzing these interactions through the collections as a whole, and connecting the novellas with the frame stories, an aspect of Zayas's writing which has often been overlooked by critics.
EAVAN O'BRIEN is a Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at Trinity College Dublin.

Without a doubt, this book deserves the title of "essential reference work" for those embarking on the study [of] Zayas as well as those who continue to research what is known as gynoaffectivity (affective relations between women) or gynocriticism. IBEROAMERICANA
