"The Life Assignment is a collection about displacement and the debts of history-how one finds a sense of home and creates one for oneself and one's community"--

"In this quietly furious bilingual debut, Maldonado challenges the entanglements of power, queer love, money, and language against the backdrop of a post-hurricane Puerto Rico and a life of daily labor in New York City...." - Publishers Weekly
