Pequena biografia
From 2009 National Book Festival brochure: "Although Julia Alvarez was born in New York City, her family moved to the Dominican Republic shortly after birth, where she spent the majority of her childhood. In 1960, when she was 10, her family returned to the United States, fleeing the Dominican Republic because of her father's involvement in an unsuccessful attempt to overthrow the dictator Rafael Trujillo. Alvarez calls herself an American, yet her writing bridges the realms of Latina and American culture."

Resenhas

Julia Alvarez, autora americana-dominicana, poderia ser mais popular no Brasil do que aparentemente é, dado o número de títulos de sua obra traduzidos no Brasil. A editora Rocco publicou dois dos títulos principais da autora: "No Tempo das Borboletas" (2001 [1994]) e "Em Nome de Salomé" (2003 [2000]).

A primeira delas, seu segundo romance publicado, "possui temática histórica e trata da morte das irmãs Mirabal durante o regime ditatorial de Rafael Trujillo na República Dominicana". A outra publicação brasileira da autora também pela editora Rocco tem como cenário, além da República Dominicana, também Cuba e os Estados Unidos. O enredo relaciona as vidas de duas mulheres e tematiza questões de empoderamento e de ativismo. (Wikipedia, 'Julia Alvarez')

Este "Antes da Liberdade" [originalmente de 2002] foi publicado pela Companhia das Letras em (2006) com tradução de Sergio Tellaroli. Trata-se de uma narrativa voltada para o público jovem adulto e tematiza questões políticas relacionadas à terra natal da autora, a República Dominicana.

A autora escreve originalmente em inglês (e além de uma combinação com inglês e espanhol, as publicações da autora, segundo o que se pode ver pela lista de publicações em seu website, recebem simultaneamente versões para o espanhol) e as traduções para o português são provavelmente feitas a partir do inglês.
