Description: Rosario Ferre's first novel written in English, The House on the Lagoon, was a National Book Award finalist. In The New York Times Book Review, Suzanne Ruta acclaimed her as a "wicked satirist of the sheltered milieu she fled to become a writer". Her latest work is a brilliantly imagined memoir about mothers and daughters.

Elvira Vernet comes from a male-dominated family of merchants living in the Puerto Rican town of La Concordia. Her father, Santiago Vernet, and his four sons help transform Puerto Rico from a bucolic island where hunger is a part of the landscape into a vibrant, industrial society with all of its contradictions and attendant ills. Handsome, eloquent, and enormously successful, Santiago can't help but captivate his only daughter. Yet in understanding her obsession with her father, Elvira must first come to terms with her mother, who died many years before and whose family, the Rivas de Santillanas, had roots in an old plantation culture that could not survive the era of mechanization. Eccentric Neighborhoods is the story of both the Vernets and the Santillanas. It is at once an attempt to lay bare the psychological conflicts that determine the relationships between mothers and daughters and the story of Puerto Rico's transformation, from the beginning of the century, into a spearhead of the Caribbean.
