New Dictionary of Puerto Rican Authors



The new Diccionario de autores puertorriqueños, edited by Víctor Federico Torres and published by Editorial Plaza Mayor in Madrid, offers an introduction to the Puerto Rican writers of the island and the diaspora in the last four decades of the 20th century. Intended as a supplement to Julia Rivera de Alvarez’s classic Diccionario de literatura puertorriqueña (which cover the period from the 19th century to the late 1960s), the new text seeks to reflect the “vitality and diversity of recent literature produced by authors of Puerto Rican heritage.”
