Books Info:

Captain of the Sleepers free pdf From the author of "The Last Night I Spent With You" comes "a captivating tale of love, politics, and death" ("The Charlotte Observer")For fifty years, Andres Yasin has carried a grudge against J. T. Bunker. Now eighty-three-years-old and dying, Bunker wants to tell his side of the story, the story of his affair with Estela, Andres's mother. As a child Andres knew Bunker as the "Captain of the Sleepers"--so called because he transported back to Vieques those who had died on the mainland but wished to be buried at home. But what really happened between Bunker and Estela, and between Estela and her one true love, a leader of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Movement? What did Andres witness, and what were the real circumstances of his mother's mysterious death?Beautifully translated by Edith Grossman, "Captain of the Sleepers" is a startling tale of remembrance and reality, and Mayra Montero's finest book yet."
