James's Recent Updates

James Femmer shared a quote
War Against All Puerto Ricans by Nelson Denis
“The entire island joined in the fun and dubbed Reily “Moncho Reyes.” Suckling pigs, called moncho reyes, were barbecued and devoured. Songs and plays about Moncho Reyes were performed throughout the island and caused great hilarity—because moncho is Caribbean slang for “congenital idiot.”53 When an entire island is laughing at its colonial governor, it is safe to say that he has outlived his usefulness. It is impossible to subjugate people who are laughing at you.54”

James Femmer shared a quote
War Against All Puerto Ricans by Nelson Denis
“For decades the doctors in Barceloneta sterilized Puerto Rican women without their knowledge or consent. Even if told about la operación (the operation), the women were not informed that it was irreversible and permanent. Over 20,000 women were sterilized in this one town.4 This scenario was repeated throughout Puerto Rico until—at its high point—one-third of the women on the island had been sterilized and Puerto Rico had the highest incidence of female sterilization in the world.5 This campaign of sterilization stemmed from a growing concern in the United States about “inferior races” and the declining “purity” of Anglo-Saxon bloodlines.”

War Against All Puerto Ricans by Nelson Denis
“American hurricane relief was strange. The United States sent no money. Instead, the following year, it outlawed all Puerto Rican currency and declared the island’s peso, with a global value equal to the US dollar, to be worth only sixty American cents.7 Every Puerto Rican lost 40 percent of his or her savings overnight.8 Then, in 1901, a colonial land tax known as the Hollander Bill forced many small farmers to mortgage their lands with US banks.9”

I was given a copy of this book as part of a Novel Publicity tour.

I didn’t know what to expect when I started reading Logos. Even as I trudged through the first few chapters, I wasn’t sure what I was reading. From the description, I knew it had somet
