About The Other Island

Little Jaime had the odds stacked against him when he arrived in New York City in 1951: he was crippled due to polio, in his family no one had ever gone to college, and because of their poverty, they would continue living in the city’s slums. And yet, Jaime went on to college, to graduate school, to the universities of Paris, Madrid, Purdue, Massachusetts, to two Ph. D’s,  and to a long career as a college professor, both in Puerto Rico and in the USA. He also went on to became the published author of 12 books, the editor of 5 others, and published in journals from Puerto Rico, the USA, Canada, Spain, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela and Colombia. This is an American success story, narrated by a professional writer.
