A macabre love story in verse about celebrity, loss, and longing following a poet who resurrects pop star Selena from the dead.
Absurd, lyrical, and heartfelt, Melissa Lozada-Oliva's Dreaming of You is a genre-bending novel in verse that examines questions of death, love, celebrity, and queer identity.
Melissa, a young Latinx poet grappling with loneliness and heartache, brings Tejano pop star Selena Quintanilla back to life. The seance kicks off an uncanny trip narrated by a Greek chorus of gossiping spirits as Melissa journeys through a dead celebrity prom, encounters her shadow self, and performs karaoke in hell. An eerie, sometimes gruesome, yet moving love story, and an interrogation of Latinidad, womanhood, obsession, and disillusionment, Dreaming of You grapples with the cost of being seen for your truest self.
