Synopsis: Twenty essays and short stories by established and new Puerto Rican authors, including Judith Ortiz Cofer, Rosario Ferre+a7, and Edward Rivera, treat the ambiguities and joys of being a child of both Puerto Rican culture and American society.

From Library Journal: In this collection, 20 modern authors have written about childhood and moving from the isla to the mainland and back and, along the way, toward a Puerto Rican identity. Editor De Jesus (M.A., Brown) divides the fiction and essays into four sections and provides a useful introduction. The section Neither Here Nor There contains Abraham Rodriguez Jr.'s classic "The Boy Without a Flag," in which American identity is questioned. Newer author Rodney Morales humorously depicts Hawaiians and Puerto Ricans overcoming differences through family values in "Ship of Dreams." Throughout, family and survival dominate as themes, sometimes pessimistically. Ivonne Sapia's "Sofia" is a grandmother who practices magic yet leads through faith. The section "Once on This Island" includes the lyrical translation of Ana Lydia Vega's "Liliane's Sunday," about a political massacre. Compared with Boricuas: Influential Puerto Rican Writings (LJ 8/95), this book has a narrower range but is well crafted. Recommended for public and academic libraries.?Rebecca Martin, Northern Illinois Univ. Lib., DeKalb
