Summary

Groundbreaking Puerto Rican novelist and poet Giannina Braschi continues her exploration of the Hispanic-American experience in this vibrant new allegorical novel, her first written originally in English. It takes place at the Statue of Liberty in post-9/11 New York City, where Hamlet, Zarathustra, and Giannina are on a quest to free the Puerto Rican prisoner Segismundo. Segismundo has been imprisoned for more than one hundred years in the dungeon of liberty, hidden away by his father, the king of the United States of Banana, for the simple crime of being born. But when the king remarries, he frees his son and, for the sake of reconciliation, makes Puerto Rico the fifty-first state and grants American passports to all Latin American citizens. This staggering show of benevolence rocks the global community, causing an unexpected power shift with far-reaching implications. In a world struggling to realign itself in favor of liberty, United States of Banana serves as a beautifully written declaration of personal independence.
