Lyrical, sensuous, baroque, Hunger's Brides charts the course of a legendary obsession. A modern Canadian researcher tracks her quarry through a lost continent of voluptuous phantoms and dark hungers. Her subject, the incomparable 17th-century Mexican poet, Sister Juana Inés de la Cruz.

Nobel prize-winning poet, Octavio Paz calls Sor Juana "the greatest versifier of the Spanish language." She mastered virtually all the verse forms in use during her time. Also called America's first feminist, the Tenth Muse, Phoenix of the Americas... In short, a megastar.
