Her debut novel is When the Cypress Whispers.
A week ago I asked the author about what she was reading. Corporon's reply:
You know that incredible feeling when you fall deeply and madly in love with a book? When you feel you are in the room with the characters, when your chest is so full of emotion that you can’t breathe and the tears spill down your cheeks and wet the page? Yeah, that’s how I feel about Ann Patchett’s Bel Canto.Visit Yvette Corporon's website.
Bel Canto has been on my “to read” list for quite some time and I finally pulled it out and read it on a recent vacation in Mexico. There I was, sitting on the sand in Cancun, surrounded by my friends and husband, but Ann Patchett managed to transport me to that ballroom in that unnamed South American country. It was as if I could actually hear Roxanne Coss singing and feel the gentle touch of love’s first kiss. For me Bel Canto is the perfect book. It’s evocative, beautiful, it made me think and it brought me to tears. I finished it about a week ago and I have not stopped thinking about it. Now that’s the sign of a great book.
