Macho Ethics: Masculinity and Self-Representation in Latino-Caribbean Narrative (Bucknell UP, 2014). Macho Ethics examines the vicissitudes and ambiguities behind literary authorship/authority and masculinity as critically staged through writing in the narrative prose (novels, chronicles, and short stories) of Latino-Caribbean authors starting in the 1980’s. Beyond this book project, I have also been at work on two manuscripts: Loving Death: The Necrophilic Imagination in Latin/o America and Tales of Disposability: Puerto Rico in the Post-911 Era.
