Publisher Description

In The Fourteen Sisters of Emilio Montez O'Brien, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Oscar Hijuelos brings to life the incredibly high-spirited Montez O'Brien family.

Nelson O'Brien runs the Jewel Box Movie Theater in a small Pennsylvania town where he and his wife, Mariela, raise one son and 14 daughters. Through the eyes of Margarita, the eldest daughter, the lives, loves and tragedies of the Montez O'Briens' and their complex family relationships unfold. While reflecting on the life of Emilio, her doggedly masculine brother, Margarita also ruminates on the nature of femininity, family, sex, love, and earthly happiness.

Her musings recall exhilarating adventures, eliciting tears and laughter, and tenderly reveal the bounteous heart of a warm, passionate family. At once lush, erotic, and gorgeously written, The Fourteen Sisters of Emilio Montez O'Brien is a masterwork by one of America's greatest writers.
