Chango's Fire by Ernesto Quinonez is a rather unusual type of story. It centers on a Puerto Rican man who works two jobs: one in construction and another in insurance fraud. Julio’s job is to burn down buildings in his neighborhood of Spanish Harlem so that people can collect the insurance money and use it to build nicer pieces of property, thus creating upscale neighborhoods that weren’t.
Chango's Fire opens to find both Julio and his neighborhood of Spanish Harlem at distinct turning points. Julio begins to stray from his Pentecostal faith and feels drawn to Santeria; at the same time he questions his religion, he critiques the patterns of gentrification in his community and yearns for a more routine life than working as an arsonist.
