Chiqui Vicioso is an essential poet, award–winning playwright, essayist, and former ambassador of the Dominican Republic. She has also authored a number of poetic and feminist biographies. In keeping with her full name, Sherezada Chiqui Vicioso is a mistress of many stories and many sleepless nights, who understands the interstices of international and Caribbean politics, and the importance of narrative and poetry to personal survival. Vicioso is a writer (and a politician), who is keenly aware of both the power and the vulnerability of women in today's world. As she sings in one of the "chapters" of the epic–like EVA/SION/S, "I am all the Juanas / the one who leaps to clean the cannons / the one who fights without arrows or a bow / the one who writes her resignation letter / with the same ink / to which she is enslaved." EVA/SION/S is the first work by this Caribbean author to be published simultaneously in Spanish, English, and French.Review:
