Gabriela Garcia’s instant bestseller OF WOMEN AND SALT launched in paperback this week to further critical acclaim. The New York Times featured it on its “New in Paperback” column, alongside a segment from Danielle Evan’s review earlier last year that celebrates the novel for centering on “the politics of what it takes to navigate the world as women — how women learn to accept brutality, how they escape it and when they learn to use it themselves.” Garcia joined Olivia Fierro on the Good Morning Arizona book club podcast, where she discussed her work as an immigrants’ rights advocate and its influence on her novel. Good Morning America, which previously selected OF WOMEN AND SALT as its April 2021 Book of the Month, sponsored an Instagram paperback giveaway on January 6. Finally, HipLatina included OF WOMEN AND SALT in its roundup of the best books by Latina authors of 2021, describing the novel as a “poignant story about topics that deeply align with the Latinx experience in America, including immigration, addiction and family relationships, that span generations, all while highlighting the weight of motherhood.” Flatiron Books published the hardcover edition on March 30, 2021, and the paperback edition on January 4, 2022.
