Junto con Sandra Cisneros y Julia Álvarez, Esmeralda Santiago se ha convertido en una de las más prominentes autoras Latinas de hoy. Una gran cantidad de lectores y fanáticos han estado a la espera por cinco largos años por el siguiente capítulo de la historia comenzada en sus memorias Cuando era Puertorriqueña y Casi una mujer; ahora la espera ha terminado. En El amante turco, Esmeralda finalmente se libera y supera una lucha monumental con su madre?sólo para caer bajo la esclavitud de “el turco” y descubrir que la pasión romántica también puede ser una prisión. Su viaje de liberación y descubrimiento personal es atrevido, narrado de una forma sincera, y nos conduce hacia su triunfante graduación de Harvard. El humanismo desenfrenado, el humor, y el valor psicológico que le dieron tanto éxito a sus dos primeras memorias, están una vez más completamente expuestas en El amante turco, que satisfacerá al número de lectores fieles y lo aumentará. La suya es una voz fresca, apasionante, y necesaria. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION In this memoir, we become witness to the transformation of the little Puerto Rican girl who emigrated to New York with her single mother and ten siblings. Esmeralda Santiago finally breaks out of a monumental struggle with her powerful mother, only to come under the thrall of "the Turk" and discover that romantic passion, too, can become a prison. Esmeralda's journey of self-liberation and self-discovery is a daring one, candidly and zestfully recounted, and leads, most improbably, to her triumphant graduation from Harvard. The expansive humanity, earthy humor, and psychological courage that made Esmeralda's first two books so successful are on full display again in El amante turco, which will both reward the author's faithful readership and extend it. Hers is a fresh, exciting, and necessary voice. "[A] deftly understated saga of an intense, abusive relationship...Santiago's latest will grow on readers. Her slow self-realization is deeply human." — Publishers Weekly
