Anmerkung des Herausgebers

Bold and playful…

Fun and smart with a bold and playful structure, the 15 linked stories of this novel explore identity (queer, immigrant, feminist) through the eyes of the Cuban narrator who fiercely loves her pet dog, the titular French Bulldog.

Beschreibung

My Favorite Girlfriend was a French Bulldog is a novel told in fifteen stories, linked by the same protagonist, our narrator, who–in her own voice and channeling the voices of others–creates an unsparing, multigenerational portrait of her native Cuba. Though she feels suffocated by the island and decides to leave, hers is not just a political novel–nor just a queer novel, an immigrant novel, a feminist novel–but a deeply existential one, in which mortality, corporeality, bureaucracy, emotional and physical violence, and the American Dream define the long journey of our narrator and her beloved pet dog, who gives the book both its title and its unforgettable ending. In its daring style and structure–both playful and profound, youthful and mature - and its frank discussion of political and sexual identity, My Favorite Girlfriend was a French Bulldog marks the emergence of an original and essential new voice.

    I couldn't tell you a single thing about this book after finishing it. Very confusing. The narrator os excellent though.
  • (3/5)
    I really enjoy the weird and quirky novels but listening to this as an audiobook threw me off a little. I didn’t enjoy the narrator’s voice changes and think it could have been better for me if she didn’t do a cheap old man voice at the beginning. 4.5 stars when not considering the audiobook!
  • (5/5)
    Can’t suffer enough and enjoy enough at the same time!
  • (2/5)
    I wish the narrator would speak naturally instead of performing. Her forced intonation made it difficult to follow.
  • (2/5)
    It was very unmemorable. It did not help that it had some glitches. The narration went off a few times in every other chapter.
