The Queen Of Puerto Rico was reviewed favorably:
- "[A]s Frank proves here, we humans can console ourselves in these dark times with the magic of a story spellbindingly told."
- "Sharply observed and simply told, these are disquieting portraits of desire and unfulfillment."
- "Mr. Frank ... has a knack for conveying the ironic and the absurd."
