Edwin Sanchez’s DIARY OF A PUERTO RICAN DEMIGOD book launch reception.

Acclaimed Puerto Rican playwright Edwin Sánchez celebrates the publication of his first novel at Pregones.


We are proud to join Puerto Rican playwright Edwin Sánchez as he celebrates the publication of his first novel, Diary of a Puerto Rican Demigod, with a reception in our lobby on Wednesday July 29, 2015  starting at 6pm

Here is what some of our colleagues have to say about Sánchez’s book:

“This beautiful story unfolds with equal parts humor and heart. Sánchez writes with brassy Latino flair and sharp Noe Coward wit, and by the end you will be clutching this book and its characters close to your heart.” – Charles Rice González, author of Chulito

“A roaring, exuberant novel by one of America’s most dynamic writers. it is filled with humor, compassion, love and a clear-eyed yet baroque take on what it means to be human during hard times and in the midst of precarious circumstances.” – Caridad Svich, playwright, 2012 OBIE for Lifetime Achievement

“Known and admired for the pointed grace and humor of his stage plays, Edwin Sánchez’s first novel proves he knows just when to dish, when to ruminate, and when to rumble. An eminently readable and bravely queer story of lust, loss, and big hearts. Snap!” – Jorge B. Merced, Associate Artistic Director, Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater
