Gabrielle Lucille Fuentes’s historical fiction novel, The Sleeping World is about fascists, freedom, family, and punk rock set in 1970’s Post-Franco Spain. Protagonist Mosca is a university student searching for her long-lost brother, who was taken by the authorities. With a strong emphasis on the power of music, The New York Times described the book as “a politically conscious adventure story in which Fuentes manages to strike a powerful balance between vivid characterization and ideological critique, capturing a generation for whom David Bowie and the Ramones were not merely pop icons but heroes.”
