The Sleeping World


The debut novel of local writer Gabrielle Lucille Fuentes, The Sleeping World, offers a glimmer of resiliency and hope amidst the turmoil of late-’70s Spain following the fall of Francisco Franco’s dictatorship. The story centers around university student Mosca, who leaves her hometown behind in search of her missing brother, whom many presume is dead after being taken by the fascist police for alleged subversive actions. The former writer of Flagpole’s Poetlandia column, Fuentes holds a BA from Brown University as well as an MFA from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and is currently working on a PhD in English literature and creative writing at UGA.
