Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Written reminiscences have taken the form of a literary subgenre and are very popular among Puerto Rican writers residing in the United States. This literary form not only is an integral part of a serious body of literature in Puerto Rican letters, but in most cases, constitutes the first step taken by many of our writers. Such is the case of Colon-Santiago's first narrative experiment: La Primera Vez Que Yo Vi El Paraiso (The First Time I Saw Paradise).
