A Bite of Bizcocho Dominicano: Mangos and Mistletoe by Adriana Herrera


On this episode, we recap and review Mangos and Mistletoe by Adriana Herrera. We talk about why this was a more satisfying queer holiday romance than the film Happiest Season, the novella’s thoughtful portrayal of Dominican culture, and all the delicious moments — pastry-related or otherwise.
