Devil's Tango is a one-woman whirlwind tour of the nuclear industry, seen through the lens of the industrial and planetary crisis unfolding at Fukushima Daiichi.

Pineda keeps track day-by-day of worsening developments at Fukushima Daiichi, and records the daily evolution of her perceptions. Often poetic in tone, philosophic in scope, her reflections are peppered with dramatic monologues, da

Three tides : writing at the edge of being by Cecile Pineda( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
"[Here], we peer over the shoulder of a "writer's writer" as she reveals the process that allows her to stumble, crawl and run. Through memoir chronicling a particular period of writing, she moves to documenting the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, mediated through the oral histories of some of its survivors. Echoes of these voices guide Pineda as she composes 'Like Snow Melting on Water," a play that chronicles the death of a 300-year-old village bordering the Sea of Japan. Pineda parallels the environmental devastation of Katrina with the burial of the village and its magnificent landscape beneath a toxic landfil by a waste disposal company."--Back cover
