Teresa Porzecanski brings a fresh new voice to the Jewish Latin
America series. She writes from Uruguay about the multicultural
experience of Jewish immigrants in Montevideo. Her exotic
characters from Europe, Africa, and the New World bring together
and struggle with the mixture of Sephardic, Ashkenazic, and Latin
American cultures. Porzecanski is herself the daughter of
immigrants who came to Montevideo in 1926 from the Baltics and
Syria. "Sun Inventions", her first novel, published in 1982, is a
semi-autobiographical story of an immigrant family from the
multifaceted perspective of a woman who is an academic, a mother, a
writer searching for meaning in the universe. "Perfumes of
Carthage" (1994) tells the stories of Lunita Mualdeb and her
Sephardic family and Angela Tejera [Weaver], whose name was given
to her African grandfather by a Brazilian slave owner.
