Mundo Cruel - Luis Negrón


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.

After the passage of the devastating hurricane Maria on the island, many Puerto Ricans were affected and still suffer the consequences of the historic atmospheric phenomenon. Thousands lost their home, their business, and even hope in a Puerto Rico capable of giving them a promising future. According to the Center for Puerto Rican Studies, by the year 2016 there were 5.5 million Puerto Ricans outside the island and it is estimated that in the next two years some 470,000 will be added to the massive population exodus from our homeland.

Despite the high rate of emigration, most of the emigrants miss their land, their customs and try everything possible to keep the culture alive from generation to generation. That is why the idea of Books 787 arises; a completely online store dedicated to the sale of books of Puerto Rican authorship.

The coolest e-commerce website to discover and buy books written by Puerto Rican authors.
