A. Pablo Iannone once told CA: "The Room with Closets: Tales of a Life Divided is a book of inter-connected short stories. Imagining America, still unpublished, is a novel that carries the recent literature of Hispanic exile beyond its mainly political concerns, by addressing the more universal themes of personal identity, group identity, and human solitude. My entire work, in philosophy, literature, and business, is highly influenced by the expatriate experience and current globalization trends."
