English-language Puerto Rican writers are too often overlooked, both in our libraries and in our curricula. This anthology should help begin to rectify that error, with fiction excerpts, short stories, and poetry by 17 contemporary Puerto Rican writers. It focuses on the past 30 years and includes not only Piri Thomas, best known for his "Down These Mean Streets," and representative of the Nuyorican era, but also more recent writers, such as Aurora Levins Morales and Judith Ortiz Cofer, who represent the feminizing and the cross-country spread of Puerto Rican culture. Recommended for comprehensive American literature collections and for those needing Hispanic literature in English.
