Surrealism, magic realism and expressionism are the hallmarks of Jose Rivera's influential body of work. This new volume collects the author's plays written in the past five years, including References to Salvador Dalí Make Me Hot ("effortlessly melds otherworldly fantasy with gritty realism to make sparks fly onstage."--The Journal News), Sueño (a reworking for Pedro Calderón's Life is a Dream) and Sonnets for an Old Century, the author's most recent work, which recently premiered in Los Angeles.

Puerto Rican-born playwright José Rivera plays have been produced all over the world and his work has been translated into seven languages. His best known work includes Marisol and Each Day Dies with Sleep. "Rivera has a messianic mission to replace old and dying creeds with vibrant new visions."--Robert Brustein, New Republic
