Reclaiming Paris

by Fabiola Santiago

"Men are like perfumes. In an instant, with nothing but a whiff of judgment, I either love them or discard them." Marisol is an exuberant poet and historical archivist living in contemporary Miami. Like her adopted city, she's a sensual free spirit. Born in Cuba and transplanted at an early age to Florida, she nurses a nostalgia for the legendary island birthplace she barely remembers. She also harbors a passion for scents, donning a new perfume each time she takes on a new relationship. After the death of her beloved grandmother and a series of sensuous but disappointing romances, Marisol realizes that she must break free from the shackles of her history, abandon lost causes, and embrace the only real home she's ever had -- her own wandering heart. Freed at last from yearning for old Havana, "the Paris of the Caribbean," this romantic exile must embrace a new life. Although she cannot reclaim Havana, she can experience the real thing -- Paris -- so Marisol sets out with an open ticket to chart the course of her future. Bridging the divide between the effervescent Miami of today and the mystical Cuba of yesteryear, Reclaiming Paris is a paean to place and memory, rich with humor, passion, and unforgettable characters.

Siempre Paris (Reclaiming Paris; Spanish edition)

by Fabiola Santiago

"Los hombres son como los perfumes. En un instante, sin más juicio que mi ágil olfato, o me enamoro de ellos o los echo a un lado". Marisol es una exuberante poeta y archivista de historia que vive en el Miami contemporáneo. Al igual que su ciudad adoptiva, ella es un espíritu libre y sensual. Nacida en Cuba y transplantada a una temprana edad en la Florida, lleva dentro una nostalgia por la legendaria isla en que nació y que apenas recuerda. Su pasión por los olores la inspira a adoptar un perfume diferente cada vez que se embarca en una nueva relación amorosa. Tras la muerte de su querida abuela y una sucesión de malogrados romances sensuales, Marisol concluye que debe liberarse de las ataduras de su historia, abandonar causas perdidas y refugiarse en el único santuario que siempre va con ella: su propio corazón errante. Liberada al fin de su añoranza por la vieja Habana, "el París del Caribe", su romántico exilio está llamado a emprender una nueva vida. Privada de reclamar La Habana como suya, opta por su verdadero destino: París. Y es así que Marisol se lanza a desbrozar el camino hacia su futuro. Salvando la distancia entre el Miami efervescente de hoy y la mística Cuba de ayer, Siempre París es un canto a la geografía y la memoria, una obra repleta de humor, pasión y personajes inolvidables.
