HONOLULU - March 6, 2018 - PRLog -- The book is composed of interconnected stories about denizens of a beachfront guesthouse in Puerto Rico, circa 1987. The mostly off-beat characters who pass through the doors of the Solimar Guesthouse are trying to straighten out off-kilter lives; each has a unique story to tell about love, sexuality, survival. Island Wildlife looks with a canny, darkly humorous eye at the struggling humanity of its characters, while also exploring the Puerto-Rico/U.S. relationship, Cuban exile politics, and how the personal and political interrelate.

Robert Friedman was a reporter, columnist and city editor for the San Juan Star in Puerto Rico for more than 20 years, and was the newspaper's Washington correspondent until it folded in 2009. While in Puerto Rico, he was also a special correspondent for the New York Daily News. Friedman is the author of four published novels about Puerto Rico—The Surrounding Sea, Under a Dark Sun, Shadow of the Fathers and Caribbean Dreams. In his fiction, he has explored the colorful and often struggling lives of island residents who try to cope, both personally and politically, with the highly ambivalent relationship between the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Born and bred in the Bronx, New York, he now lives in Silver Spring, Md.

"The gritty situations faced by the rather weird, and sometimes heart-warming characters in the book," says Friedman, "are part of my ongoing journalistic effort to get to the gist of the truth about people and places through fiction."
