(Jan. 20, 2018) Anthurium Review of Market Aesthetics

The journal Anthurium has published a review of Market Aesthetics.

Paula Park posits that “Market Aesthetics gives new insights to how Caribbean diasporic writers seek to communicate with readers who consume their historical fiction.” Additionally, she argues that the book “asks readers of Caribbean historical fiction to evaluate their goal as they invest themselves in a reality and a past that they cannot experience first hand. In the end, Machado Sáez thoughtfully reminds us that we—as scholars or readers— will never cease to question our ethical imperative because we are also part of a market that endeavors to label us one way or another.”
