Island Adrift Grace Calm, Books, Fiction and Literature, Island Adrift Books>Fiction and Literature ISLAND ADRIFT breaks down stereotyped images of Puerto Rico and its people. For example, Carlos Caldes, a young professor from a wealthy island family, returns home with an American wife to find the paranoia over the island's legal ties to the United States affecting almost everyone's personal lives in some way-from love triangles, to family feuds and a revolutionary plot to take over the island. Carlos finds all this counter to his innate world-view, but in his struggle to resolve it creatively, topples his own marital situation. From the varied viewpoints and actions of the novel's other characters, there emerges a kaleidoscopic picture of this dynamic but troubled island.
