Presented as a series of lectures interspersed with letters and other documents, this historical novel by one of Puerto Rico's most acclaimed contemporary novelists chronicles a pre-arranged marriage plotted to pacify the slave population and to save Puerto Rico from a rebellion. Intense and masterfully structured, the story of the eighteenth-century hero Baltasar Montanez provides a rich insight into issues of class and race in colonial Puerto Rico.
