Description: "Mother was born in Guayames on January 6,1901. Her father, Alvaro Rivas de Santillana, believed she was a present from the Three Kings, but Valera Boffil, my grandmother, didn't agree at all. She was sure Clarissa was born because of the rains".

Thus begins one of the many vibrant tales in Vecindarios excentricos. Here are the colorful stories of men and women whose loves and losses coincide with the demise of Puerto Rico's plantation society and the rise of the nouveaux riches. Ferre's characters spring from the page, mythic in their dreams and deeds. A caring father, determined to match his lovely daughter with a member of the French aristocracy, seals her fate as the casualty of a ball at Versailles. A spinster seduces the richest man on the island by appealing in equal measure to Jesucristo and the Bureau of Tax Returns. Ferre's incantatory prose, an irresistible blend of history and imagination, depicts a family saga in the manner of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
