Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This literary anthology displays the talents of 30 Mexican American writers in an effort to introduce the reading public to a neglected aspect of United States culture. Most of the work appears in English, though a few pieces are offered in Spanish, or in both languages. Using traditional as well as experimental literary forms, the authors explore a variety of themes, including alienation, Catholicism, fantasy, exile, and popular culture. Among the most noteworthy selections: poems by Andres Redriguez, Ray Gonzalez, and Francisco X. Alarcon; the fiction of Gloria Anzaldua and Marie-Elise Wheatwind. A good addition to fiction collections.-- David A. Berona, Westbrook Coll. Lib., Portland, Me.
