Synopsis

What happens when a beautiful young Jewish girl from Manhattan falls helplessly in love with a Latino Casanova whose mother insists that before the two can be married the bride-to-be must first convert to Puerto Rican? This is the story of how Rebecca Horowitz becomes Zoraida Delgado; and how, under the influence of that bastard boyfriend of hers, Charlie Maisonet, she manages to dismantle--and to discover surprising facets of--her own identity. Edgardo Vega Yunqué's newest novel is a delicious tribute to the foibles of ethnic love.
