Affinity for trouble : a Puerto Rican story by Héctor Varela( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The precocious street-wise voice of a boy urchin introduces you to a spiritual struggle as he fends for survival in the poverty-ridden neighborhoods of Santurce, Puerto Rico. His complicated family includes his violent and loving father, papi Guelo, his introverted and egotistical mother, mami Letty, his macho amoral gang-chief, uncle Freddy, and his despot criolla grandmother, mami Provi. This story captures accurately the essence of an era through his eyes as he overcomes formidable odds in the 1940s and 1950s. Puerto Rico's culture and its tri-racial heritage are cleverly explored, as is its cuisine and the lifeblood of its beloved music. It clearly depicts the base shotgun engagement of the U.S. to Puerto Rico. Affinity for trouble is about cultural relationships, the immediate violence for turf that the drug trade engendered, and a surprising number of what we currently believe to be contemporary issues but are merely historical repeats
