Family Matters enlarges and revitalizes the scope of most scholarship published on the topic of U. Latinas or other critical Puerto Rican literary texts.

Reference Mistry, Rohinton, Family Matters. Moreno proposes the recognition of a "transinsular" corpus to reflect the increasingly transnational character of the Puerto Rican population and addresses the need to broaden the literary canon in order to include the diaspora. Drawing on the fields of historiography, cultural studies, and gender studies, the author defies the tendency to examine these literary bodies independently of one another and therefore aims to present a more nuanced and holistic vision of this literature.
Contemporary Puerto Rican literature gained critical importance beginning in the late s, with the publication of trendy novels in translation produced by a group of women writers.

Moreno Univ. Following the unresolved colonial condition of Puerto Rican politics, Moreno discusses Puerto Rican women writers' reactions to key national movements. She analyzes works by Puerto Rican women writers in the US Nicholasa Mohr, Judith Ortiz Cofer, and Esmeralda Santiago , whose literature produced in English develops feminist issues similar to those of their island counterparts.
This study is a refreshing change from the usual scrutiny of male Puerto Rican narrative writers.

Moreno's critical focus is exploration of the "extended Puerto Rican family" metaphor, a reflection of governmental policies, particularly those during the terms of Luis Munoz Marin, the first elected Puerto Rican governor and creator of the current Commonwealth of Puerto Rico This is a valuable comparative critical study of the seemingly dis similar feminist voices of island Puerto Rican women writers and of US-based Puerto Rican women writers.
