Cristina Garcia

When: Fri., Feb. 10, 7:30 p.m. 2012

In her latest novel, Cristina García -- author of the lush, charming Dreaming in Cuban, a National Book Award finalist -- brings together a Japanese-Mexican-American matadora, a table-waiting ex-guerrilla, a colonel who committed civil-war atrocities back at home, and three other strangers to a luxury hotel in an anonymous Central American city; sets the town ablaze with political strife; and then takes excellent notes. García reads from The Lady Matador's Hotel, just released in paperback, on Friday, Feb. 10, at Mrs. Dalloway's (2904 College Ave., Berkeley). 7:30 p.m., free. 510-704-8222 or Mrs. Dalloways.com
