About the Author Reinaldo Arenas was born in Cuba in 1943. In 1980, he was one of 120,000 Cubans who arrived in the United States on the Mariel boatlift.
Arenas settled in New York where he lived until his death from AIDS ten years later. Her first novel, At Fault (1890), had difficulty finding a publisher, so she brought it out at her own expense. The Awakening, now her best-known work, appeared in 1899.
In 1892, she published the now-famous story The Yellow Wall-Paper. In 1898, her most famous nonfiction book, Women and Economics, was published. Nella Larsen, one of the most acclaimed and influential writers of the Harlem Renaissance, was born Nellie Walker on April 13, 1891, in Chicago. She began publishing stories in the mid-1920s and published her first novel, Quicksand, in 1928.
