Never, Ever Ever, Coming Down, the first collection of short stories by Iván Monalisa Ojeda, gathers the voices of transsexuals, transvestites, locas and two-spirits who roam through the nights and streets of Manhattan -its bars, clubs, neighborhoods and apartments.

The English translation from Chilean and Washington Heights Spanish, by Marc Brudzinski, treasures the accuracy and fluidity of a prose which uncovers those workers who, in the dangerous spaces underneath and in between the glittering façades of New York, band together under a multicolor and plurilingual flag in order to survive.
