Teo Castellanos’ Third Trinity is one of the best books that Jitney has published. It’s not traditional, like the holidays, it’s a screenplay, play and short film script. Screenplays in general are not a traditional book, but Third Trinity is so unique it truly belongs in college classrooms.
 
Not to mention Teo Castellanos is no doubt one of the best literary voices we have in Miami. We are very lucky he has maintained his residence here rather than moving away to New York or LA. 
 
As busy as Teo is we caught up with him on the Jitney and asked a simple question.
 
What makes Third Trinity make a good holiday gift? 
 
In typical Teo dramatic fashion, to the tune of “The 12 Days of Christmas” here’s why Teo says his book should be in your loved one’s stocking:
 
Twelve Crimes Committed
 
Eleven Bails a – Droppin’
 
Ten Planes a – Flaming
 
Nine New Wave Ladies
 
Eight 80’s Reference
 
Seven Machetero’s
 
Six Guns a – Spraying
 
Five Dru-ug Rings!
 
Four Prison Birds
 
Three Ricans
 
Two Racist Cops and,
 
A Young Man Burning Trees.
