This collection of short stories is a fun, sometimes funny, thought-provoking read. I especially loved the last two stories by Ana Lydia Vega: "Three Love Aerobics" and "ADJ, Inc." The stories are like mind aerobics--they make you think and stretch basic ideas. Also interesting is the use of narration to show differing points of view on subjects like love and marriage.
I don't know much about Puerto Rican writers, but the introduction gives a fairly good briefing. On the whole, this book was a great introduction to Puerto Rican female authors.
