  1. Centro, the Antithesis of Fake News 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2017

    I bought this volume to read the Fragoso piece, who I wasn't familiar with, but then it was a wonderful surprise to find the Burgos essay, and the other piece about our latest political frontier -- Orlando. It's easy to get lost in this diasporic landscape (I live in North Carolina), where if we're not tethered to social, political or cultural Puerto Rican movements, activities or representations, we can easily slip into an ambiguous terrain of isolation. Centro is wonderful for its stamp of excellent writing, but also for its ability to lure us into the Puerto Rican salon.
