Your passport into a world simultaneously real and imaginary, one most people don’t even know exists.

In Boricua Passport, J.L. Torres guides his reader through a morphing homeland; from paradise to housing projects, from sand-filled island beaches to summer tarred city rooftops. The scape of the land he calls home mutates before your eyes...Grief caused by family separation, the horrific life of slavery, the brutal working life in the fields, the alienation of one's identity, is transformed anew with vitality and pride...
--Nancy Mercado, Writer and Editor

About the Book

BORICUA PASSPORT evokes the complex inbetweeness that represents the contemporary Puerto Rican condition as filtered through the prism of poet J.L. Torres’ life experience. For many Puerto Ricans the sense of being unhomed — having a homeland but not really feeling at home anywhere — is a real lived experience determined by a persisting and unsettled colonial condition. In BORICUA PASSPORT, Torres, screams, shouts, rejoices, celebrates, tickles and challenges with a poetry sprinkled with Spanish/Spanglish that is immediate and urgent. His is a testimony to the indefatigable Puerto Rican spirit which, although burdened by this colonial condition, still strives to cobble a hybrid world full of love, passion and hope. It’s your passport into a world simultaneously real and imaginary, one most people don’t even know exists. A must read!
