Review

True to its title, this comprehensive bilingual anthology of contemporary New York Puerto Rican women writers categorically represents a groundbreaking endeavor. The literary corpus included herein offers a vast and noteworthy selection of both well recognized and promising emerging authors. Without a doubt, this collection is a much-needed addition to the study of the literature of the Puerto Rican diaspora and an indispensable source in understanding how the experiences of migration, translocality, hybridity, and cultural, racial, and gender subjectivities and negotiations are rendered through creative expression. --Edna Acosta-Belen, Distinguished Professor, University at Albany SUNY and contributing editor to the Norton Anthology of Latino Literature

La excelente y amplia seleccion de autoras, poemas y narraciones ha cuajado en un volumen imprescindible para quien ensene Literatura del Caribe hispano, Literatura latina en los Estados Unidos o quiera conocer la riqueza literaria de toda una generacion. --Sonia Rivera Valdes, Presidenta, Latino Artists Round Table, Ganadora del Premio Casa de las Americas

To anthologize is a very specific thing to do and Myrna Nieves has a keen perceptive eye and does this expertly and genuinely. In this book you will find some of the best writing around the nation. --Miguel Algarin, writer and critic, founder of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe
