In her novel Playing with Light (2000), Rivera invents a world where the lines between national histories, collective myths . I interviewed Beatriz Rivera in Houston on December 1, 2000, during her book tour for Playing with Light.

In her novel Playing with Light (2000), Rivera invents a world where the lines between national histories, collective myths, and individual memories blur, foregrounding the dynamic interplay of time and geopolitical space as experienced by old and new generation Cuban American women. Rivera's women characters look to Cuba's past-when novels were read to tobacco factory workers in the nineteenth century-to form a Latina-based tertulia (get-together) for reading counter-resistant histories and stories.

Fiction. Rebecca Barrios, a well-off Miami Beach housewife (and she hates that description, by the way), has decided to revive the old Cuban tradition of the tertulia, or women's get-together. In fact, the two worlds -- the real and the fictional, the American and the Cuban, the living present and the (supposedly) long-dead past -- have begun to relentlessly intertwine in unsettling ways. Born in Havana, Beatriz Rivera came to Miami at the age of three, soon after Castro's rise to power in Cuba. Her books include AFRICAN PASSIONS AND OTHER STORIES and the novel MIDNIGHT SANDWICHES AT THE MARIPOSA EXPRESS, both of which are also available from SPD.
