I find with Hispanic writers I either love them or hate them. I found it to be true of this book also. A collection of both fiction and non-fiction stories. It featured such great writers as Esmeralda Santiago, Piri Thomas and Judith Ortiz Cofer. I wasn't too crazy about the poetry. I also didn't like the political edge of some of the stories particularly the ones that favored the "independistas" as they had a very communistic feel to them.
