About the Author

In Dance Between Two Cultures, William Luis has created a field of study. This book will be the cornerstone of a new discipline. --Roberto Gonzalez Echevarraa Dance Between Two Cultures provides an insightful and well-informed overview of the literature of Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Dominican writers in this country. There is no comparable book, and its topic is undoubtedly timely and important. --Randolph D. Pope, Washington University
