In The Fourteen Sisters of Emilio Montez O'Brien, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Oscar Hijuelos introduces the dynamic Montez O'Brien family-half Irish, half Cuban, and wholly memorable. Told through the eyes of the oldest daughter, Margarita, the intricate relationships, intense passions, griefs and joys of a complex and dynamic cast of characters come to life in a novel that's both exuberant and lyrical.

Start reading The Fourteen Sisters of Emilio Montez O'Brien on your Kindle in under a minute. I believe I have now read all of Hijuelos' books and this one didn't disappoint. Although the oldest sister is the focal point of the story, the reader really gets to know the entire family - each girl with her strengths, weaknesses, dreams, disappointments, and triumphs, and then there is Emilio surrounded by all those women in his life. The writing is so readable; the words just seem to "paint" a picture of this remarkable yet so ordinary family.

I originally read Oscar Hijuelos' The Fourteen Sisters of Emilio Montez O'Brien when it first came out. I was in twelfth grade and enjoyed reading books about Hispanic culture at the time. The Montez O'Brien family was the type of family I was captivated by- a melting pot of Cuban, Irish, and Spanish cultures. Combining the different ethnicities was Hijuelos' tale about fourteen sisters with distinct personalities all in one family.

In The Fourteen Sisters of Emilio Montez O'Brien, Oscar Hijuelos brings to life the rambunctious Montez O'Brien family. In a small Pennsylvania town, Nelson O'Brien runs the Jewel Box Movie Theater, raising 14 daughters and a son with his wife, Mariela Montez. Through the eyes of Margarita, the eldest daughter, the lives, loves and tragedies of the Montez O'Briens and their complex family relationships unfold.

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.

OSCAR HIJUELOS's The Mambo Kings Play Songs Of Love cast a potent spell over weary intellectuals. The story of a Cuban dance band in New York during the 1950s, its enchantment lay in Hijuelos's paeans to heterosexual lust and happy physical abandon. The characters ate huge meals of steak, chops and chorizos smothered in oil, garlic, lemon and salt.
