Young Flora longs for true love--love that is "blue like infinite sky, red like a volcano's heart, pure like all the water that surrounds Puerto Rico." But her fiancé is the biggest scoundrel in town, her father resolves conflict with a machete, and her cousin says happiness is a one-way ticket to America. A bittersweet tale of the strange powers of love, Boleros for the Disenchanted spans four decades, from Puerto Rico in 1953 to years later in the United States, when a shattered heart must face an astounding test of devotion. The newest work by OBIE Award-winning José Rivera (A.C.T.'s Brainpeople, Marisol), the Academy Award-nominated screenwriter of The Motorcycle Diaries.
