The long-awaited new memoir by the author of When I Was Puerto Rican and Almost a Woman—the emotionally and psychologically charged story of an exotic and dangerous love affair

The Washington Post - Kathryn Harrison

The Turkish Lover doesn't cast the vivid narrative spell of Santiago's earlier descriptions of growing up in Puerto Rico, but there is considerable suspense in watching and waiting for her eventual escape. If Santiago is not a consistently elegant writer, she is one who has forged a remarkable life and career that readers cannot help but follow.
