Very-good+ condition. Ex-library hardback. Usual library markings. Inner pages are free from writing and tears. Tight spine, bright pages. 272 pages. From Publishers ... Weekly By turns lyrical, expansive, introspective and raw, these 20 stories of growing up Mexican-American reaffirm the potency of Chicano literature. In tales by Gary Soto, Rudolfo Anaya, Denise Chavez, Alberto Alvaro Rios and others, youthful protagonists confront ethnic sterotypes, test the bonds of family, search for identity and cope with love, death, rites of passage and divorcing parents. These stories are at once universal and rooted in a specific culture. Notable are Sandra Cisneros's account of growing up poor in Chicago ("Eleven"), Gerald Haslam's tale of an English-speaking boy's loyalty to his Spanish-speaking great-grandmother ("The Horned Toad"), Louie The Foot Gonzalez's profile of a shamanistic wise woman/herbal healer in Sacramento's barrio ("Dona Tona of Nineteenth Street") and Alicia Gaspar de Alba's recreation of the childhood of 17th-century nun and protofeminist poet, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Booklist With a foreword by the spiritual grandfather of Chicano literature, Rudolfo Anaya, and fine editing by L{?}opez, this collection arrives at a time when many U.S. readers are just being introduced to Latino literature. It is sincerely thought-out anthologies such as this that present the best Latino writing being produced. Twenty of today's finest Chicano writers are featured here, from Anaya, with an excerpt from his novel Tortuga, in which a storyteller reveals the magic of words and what they can do for those who tell and those who listen, to Sandra Cisneros, represented by "Eleven," a wonderful piece about a little girl looking back on life from her eleventh birthday. As issues of multiculturalism spread from academia into the curricula of elementary classrooms, it is collections such as this that help lay the foundations of a deeper understanding of what it's like Read more Show Less
