Book Summary

The winner of the 2002 Miguel Mármol Prize explores an array of identity issues in the Latino community in a debut collection of eleven intriguing tales of characters struggling to fit into American culture as they deal with differences in race, culture, class, language, and gender to find out who they are and to find others who will accept them for who they are.
