Libro de Ed Morales analiza la secuela de María en Puerto Rico
I’m super-excited to announce that my new book, Fantasy Island: Colonialism, Exploitation, and the Betrayal of Puerto Rico will go on sale on Tuesday, September 10th, 2019. The book brings together research and reporting I’ve been doing on Puerto Rico for many years, from analyzing the development of its $72 billion debt crisis to the harrowing aftermath of Hurricane María. I also tell the story of my own personal connection to the island through the narrative arc of my family’s migratory journey to New York City and back.
Perhaps the most exciting thing to me about Fantasy Island is that it is written from the perspective of someone whose entire life has been intimately linked with the fate of Puerto Rico. Many of you have been friends, colleagues, and supporters and know what that kind of connection means.
I’ve been among the first writers to report extensively about the debt crisis and its impact on Puerto Rico’s future, and Fantasy Island is an unflinching look at how the island has been short-changed as the result of its colonial status, and what kind of work needs to be done to change that.
I’m writing to ask if you and your friends will consider supporting the book and its upcoming release by pre-ordering it now. Pre-order rates are something booksellers and the media take into account in their decisions to promote and/or review the book, and in that way greatly increase the chances of sharing its message.

Ed Morales has put together a compelling indictment of U.S. colonialism in Puerto Rico, based on journalistic and academic sources as well as his personal experiences as a New York-born Puerto Rican who cares deeply about his ancestral homeland. His work is an engaging, compassionate, well-documented, and crisply written analysis of the political, economic, and demographic downturn of the Island, after more than a decade of economic recession and almost two years since hurricane Maria.”
The hurricanes, the debt, the depopulation. Ed Morales has written an urgent, fascinating, and impassioned portrait of Puerto Rico, the world's oldest colony.”
