Synopsis

Cuentos is a bilingual anthology of twelve short stories, many of which appeared in the 1960s in the English-language magazine ""The San Juan Review"", co-founded by Kal Wagenheim and Augusto Font. Written by six of Puerto Rico's leading writers, the themes vary in time from the 16th-century Spanish conquest to the migration of Puerto Ricans to the United States. Each story is published in both English and the original Spanish. Sometimes sad and sometimes hilariously comic, these stories represent in many respects an authentic voice of the Puerto Rican people.
