Finalist for the 2014 Neustadt Prize for International Literature. Winner of: Gold Medal, Commonwealth Club of California, The Sue Kaufman Prize of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters.
"When I read Face in 1985, it struck me as an extraordinary achievement, all the more extraordinary for being a first novel. Rereading it has not changed my estimate. I am deeply impressed by this book, as much by what is said as by what is not said. I presume that it is humanly possible to do what Helio does to his face; and that it is not foolishly naïve to ask and answer questions about what it possible in the real world.... FACE continues to haunt me."
— J.M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize for Literature, 2003
This new expanded edition of Face, by Latina novelist Cecile Pineda, with a Foreword by Nobel Prize winner J. M. Coetzee, received the Commonwealth Club's Gold Medal and the Sue Kaufman Prize. Based on the true story of a man who surgically reconstructs his own face, Publishers Weekly called it a "compelling" metaphor for identity. Cecile Pineda is a 2014 finalist for the prestigious [Neustadt International Prize for Literature], and Face is her representative work for that award.
