I’m pleased to announce that my new book, Fantasy Island: Colonialism, Exploitation and the Betrayal of Puerto Rico will be published by Bold Type Press on September 10th, 2019. The book is a historical overview of Puerto Rico’s colonial relationship with the U.S. including a detailed explanation of the accumulation of the island’s $72 billion debt. In fact, the deep background behind the current political crisis in Puerto Rico is a central theme of Fantasy Island.
The book is available for pre-order now on your preferred platform if you visit the Hachette Books site. I’ll be announcing upcoming appearances for Fantasy Island in New York, Jersey City, and Washington D.C. soon. The Spanish translation of Fantasy Island will be available in November and I will be making appearances in Puerto Rico as well.
