Women Loved Dr. Böll is a wonderfully written satire set in Downtown Miami… It explores the zaniness and insanity Miamians love and endure.” The Huffington Post.

Raúl Guerrero recreates the exuberance and chaos of Miami in unsettling intimacy, while probing the ambivalence of love, sex, betrayal, relocation, greed, art and language.

Raúl Guerrero authored numerous works of fiction and non-fiction, notably the historical novel ​INSOLENCEand Crónica del corazón, a mini encyclopedia for the heart. He writes about language and culture for publications worldwide.
