Overview

Poetry. Fiction. Latino/Latina studies. Foreword by Juan Velasco. Here is a fresh, vigorous body of work, ranging from Jaime de Angulo's visions of Spaniards and Indians to the classic Chicano novels of Jose Antonio Villareal and Raymond Barrio, and from the nineteenth-century childhood memories of Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo to the contemporary poetry of Lucha Corpi. Celebrating two centuries of Latino voices, UNDER THE FIFTH SUN collects poetry, fiction, memoirs and commentary covering more than two centuries of Latino presence in California, from missionaries and soldiers to gold miners, farm workers and political refugees. A celebration, an outcry, a revelation and a powerful reading experience, this anthology ranges from naturalism to magical realism, from lyric poetry to detective fiction, with works by Francisco X. Alarcon, Isabel Allende, Ana Castillo, Cesar Chavez, Carlos Fuentes, Juan Marichal, Alma Luz Villaneuva and many others.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In California, the mythical land where cultures collide, people use storytelling to understand one another better. So says Juan Velasco in his foreword to this anthology, which blends diverse genres-poetry, drama, essays, diaries, and fiction-to concoct an interesting brew. The authors hail from Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, and Native California tribes-in short, from cultures not dominated by the Northern European experience. Editor Heide features many new or lesser-known writers in addition to some better-known Latino names (e.g, Neruda, Paz, Rodriguez, and Allende), thus saving the volume from being completely mainstream. The literature collected here is eyeopening, exploring Latino history from the loss of tierra, lamented in Native American lore, to the horrors inflicted on Chileans and Mexicans during the Gold Rush and on to the daily degradations occurring in Tijuana and other border sites today. Yes, we find amor and familia and compadres, but the history documented and the social issues addressed should make this text required reading for all students of California culture. Recommended for all public and most academic libraries.-Nedra C. Evers, Sacramento P.L., CA Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
