One of the main certainties exposed in the reading of this book is that the world that these stories summon is a gay world. The short stories build a comic geography of twisted desire, a geography that figures mostly between Santurce and Santa Rita, populated by closeted homosexuals as well as those who came out, AIDS patients, bisexuals, transgender, manly lesbians, effeminate lesbians, disco gays, in short, the entire new San Juan vanity fair. These are tales of urban violence, poverty, sickness, abuse, but without an ounce of sorrow, without a hint of the type of sadness that corners the victim. The intelligence that reigns here is the intelligence of humor, compassion, generosity, solidarity. The characters in the cruel world of Luis Negrón are not the cursed pariahs of the city's death zone. They are your new citizens, those other bodies that came to stay. - Rubén Ríos Ávila.
