Memoir is Rosario Ferre's account of her life both as a writer and as a member of a family at the center of the economic and political history of Puerto Rico during the American Century, one hundred years of territorial "non-incorporation" into the United States. The autobiography tells the story of Ferre's transformation from the daughter of a privileged family into a celebrated novelist, poet, and essayist concerned with the welfare of Puerto Ricans, and with the difficulties of being a woman in Puerto Rican society. It is a snapshot of twentieth-century Puerto Rico through the lens of a writer profoundly aware of her social position. It is a picture taken from the perspective of a keen observer of the local history of the island, and of the history of the United States. Included are many photographs that connect Ferre's life with the story of her writing career.

It is a candid and thoughtful conversation with one of Puerto Rico's greatest literary voices, a book filled with wry humor and tenderness in which Ferre's rebellious spirit still shines through." -- Anibal Gonzalez, Yale University
