Amen cu Sanger (Ebook)

(3 customer reviews)

Sexualidad ta un tema cu te dia di awe ta causa hopi controversia. Entre e amienda di Union Civil cu a keda pega ariba mesa di gobierno y e discusionnan fuerte cu ta lanta cada bes cu e tema di homosexualidad aparece ariba medionan social, ta keda mas claro cu e tema aki ainda ta polarisa. Pa Joshuar Gomez, e tabata hopi importante pa skirbi un buki cu ta conta e experiencianan homosexual, for di un perspectiva Arubiano.

“Mi ta kere cu aceptacion ta un sintimento cu ta nace solamente for di un luga di identificacion. Pa e ser humano ta mas facil pa ta tolerante y comprensivo na momento cu un storia aheno tin un cara conoci. Pa con dificil of inconfortabel e storia aki porta ta, e cara conoci lo semper humanis’e. Di mesun forma, ta facil pa husga y dihumanisa e storianan cu nunca ta haya bos. ‘Amen cu Sanger’ a nace for di e necesidad pa e identificacion aki. Mi ta kere cu ta ora pa e experencianan LGBT wordo conta for di perspectivanan crioyo. Storianan di nos mesun hendenan, conta den nos propio lenga Papiamento.”

‘Literatura mester kibra baricada di taboo’ E meta di e autor ta pa pusha e baricada confortabel cu a wordo crea den e cultura literario na Aruba, unda ta invadi skirbi riba temanan taboo of controversial. Su obra ta conta e storia di un mucha homber homosexual cu ta haya su mes confronta cu temanan di violencia basa riba odio of ignorancia, religion su rol den forma mentalidadnan encuanto sexualidad, depresion, prostitucion y hopi mas. Cada capitulo ta introduci personahenan cu e Arubiano por facilmente reconoce of identifica su mes cu ne.

‘Amen cu Sanger’ ta un buki cu tin varios aña den proceso y finalmente Joshuar Gomez ta logra public’e. A purba public’e un par di aña pasa, pero tur e portanan na unda el a bati, a bisa cu Aruba no tabata cla pa un buki asina. Pero den colaboracion cu Papiamentistanan Zuleika Silva y Mila Zambrano, e buki awor ta riba mercado.

    Sun, sea and sand aren’t the only things worth noting on the “happy” island of Aruba and Joshuar Gomez makes that perfectly clear in his debut-novel; Amen cu Sanger. Joshuar whips up a bittersweet cocktail made with love, anxiety and most notably heartbreaking homophobia, best served on the rocks. The beautifully worded novel transports you into a life not known to many, where not all that glitters is gold. A true page-turner and must read for anyone who enjoys a suspenseful story that gives you a glimpse into the life of LGBTQ people in Aruba.

    Amen cu Sanger - Review

    I do not even know how to begin describing my experience reading this book. It was just a rollercoaster of emotions. This book made me laugh, cry, yell and even shocked me at times. However, this is al because it’s written so well. Joshuar really transports you into the mind of Alex and how he experiences being gay on Aruba. This book is very daring and provocative as Joshuar touches on subjects that are seen as taboo ( I won’t tell you which subjects as I might give spoilers).

    Besides the story having depth it’s also so beautifully written. This book really makes you appreciate the papiamento language much more ( and surely improved my vocabulary haha)

    I will not say too much about the story as I feel like one should just experience it.

    But that said you are surely in for a ride.

    I finished this book a couple of days ago and can I just say how much I LOVE it! It was such a smooth read but with so much suspense. I couldn’t stop reading🤯🤯.

    I don’t have students this year who speak Papiamento but you can bet that I’ll be recommending this book to anyone who does, and I someday hope to have a bunch of copies stacked up on a classroom shelf, so anyone can pick it up because it really is just that good with such a powerful message.

    I genuinely hope you keep writing more books!
