Todo el paisaje de mi infancia ha desaparecido . . . Edgardo Rodriguez Julia is an expert and lyrical guide to the history, inhabitants, and culture of his native city of San Juan, recalling scenes from his childhood while chonicling the social and physical changes in the city. Though superhighways have replaced the winding lanes and Puerto Ricans remain socially and politically divided, Rodriguez Julia also evokes picturesque imagery and the melancholy sweetness of remembrance as he leads readers through his Ciudad Sonada, his city of dreams.
