Daina Chaviano's The Island of Eternal Love (Riverhead, 336 pages, $25.95) has been translated into 20 languages around the world, including English, introducing Chaviano to English-speaking readers for the first time. Her story of "three families from opposite corners of the world — from Africa, Spain and China — that spans more than a century" is a dreamy tale of love and loss.

Read M.E. Collins' Sun-Times review of the book.

And if you're still unsure of what it's about or whether to read it, check out this bizarre "trailer" I stumbled upon on YouTube. There is no commentary, only imagery, music and text. I've never seen such a thing and am wondering if it helps sales?
