This collection explores the literary tradition of Caribbean Latino literature written in the U.S. beginning with Jose Marti and concluding with 2008 Pulitzer Prize winning novelist, Junot Diaz. The contributors consider the way that spatial migration in literature serves as a metaphor for gender, sexuality, racial, identity, linguistic, and national migrations.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Perez Rosario offers an extremely valuable collection of essays about the experience of migration in Hispanic Caribbean literature. Summing Up: Highly Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty." - Choice

"Hispanic Caribbean Literature of Migration: Narratives of Displacement is an impressive accomplishment. The essays explore key moments in the history of Caribbean Latino literature and bring expert critical attention to trends over the past 150 years. Latino, meaning of Spanish speaking heritage in Anglo-America, is a word that points to contrapuntal doubling from the richly informative Introduction by Vanessa Perez Rosario and throughout the dozen excellent essays. The collection foregrounds the work of both established and younger scholars in the field, all of whom tackle a major author and deepen our appreciation through rich contextualization and fine readings. No other book I know on Latino literature is as timely, broad, and welcome." - Doris Sommer, Ira and Jewell Williams Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures, and of African and African American Studies, Director of Cultural Agents, Harvard University
