Enclave is Tato Laviera’s second book of verse. As in his successful La Carreta Made a U-Turn, Laviera celebrates the Puerto Rican experience in New York. While the earlier book focuses on events and scenes, Enclave concentrates on the individual. Laviera provides a gallery of portraits of the indomitable inhabitants of the enclave, whose lives are evoked through the soulful rhythmic songs “en clave.”
