Cecile Pineda received a National Endowment Fiction Fellowship to write The Love Queen of the Amazon, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.Review:
"Pineda transforms our dread fears of disfigurement and ugliness into a plangent epiphany of the human spirit . . . [She] will be compared to Cortazar, Borges, and Marquez. She has breathed the life of drama, the mortality of the novel, and her own special grace into what she found. Cheers!" —Los Angeles Times Book Review
"I am deeply impressed by this book, as much by what is not said as by what is said." —J. M. Coetzee, winner, Nobel Prize in Literature
