It also was the era of angels, which came to a climax in Tony Kushner's Angels in America. But the two trends intersected most gaudily in Jose Rivera's Marisol, the story of a young woman living in a terrifying inner-city wasteland who tries to maintain her faith that her Guardian Angel is protecting her. But one day her Guardian Angel appears with bad news. The angels are revolting against

Boleros for the disenchanted and other plays by José Rivera( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the fecund imagination of José Rivera, a writer known for his lunch language, open heart and stylistic flirting with the surreal, come four new plays that interweave love and politics. Boleros for the disenchanted is a story of the playwright's own parents: their falling in love in 1950s Puerto Rico up through more difficult times forty years later in America. In Brainpeople, three desolate women in a postapocalyptic Los Angeles feast on a slaughtered tiger . Adoration of the old woman centers on a young American woman sent to Puerto Rico during a vote for statehood to stay with her great-grandmother, who is being visited by her dead husband's lover. Pablo and Andrew at the altar of words, a one-act penned in protest of California's Proposition 8, is an exuberant confession of love between two men."--Cover, p. [4]
