Elena Valdez analyzes transactional, heterosexual romance as an allegory of national and transnational formations in her chapter on contemporary Dominican literature and Haitian literature. Rita Indiana, Aurora Arias, and Dany Laferrière write about sex-worker protagonists who, Valdez argues, find inclusion within the nation through the sexual economy provided by tourism. These works explore sex tourism and representations thereof, along with gender relations.
