Zapata Rose in 1992 and Other Tales

by Gary D. Keller

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
To four of the stories in this collection, originally published as Tales of El Huitlacoche (Maize Pr., 1984), Keller adds three new ones. Two of them--``Hidalgo, Adventure Capitalist,'' a winsome saga of a latter-day Don Quijote, and the titular tale, whose interlocutors are Emiliano Zapata, Cervantes, and Saint Teresa--are novel-length. Keller relishes telling stories of the Chicano experience, imbuing them with personal expression, believable characters, and especially well-tempered satire. Some readers may be disconcerted by the constant shifting in mid-sentence from English to an often colloquial and untranslatable Spanish. Still, Keller, a Hispanic literature scholar, provides a delightful diversion that will appeal to Chicanos and Anglos alike.-- Lawrence Olszewski, OCLC, Dublin, Ohio
