Rolando Hinojosa


Clásicos Chicanos/ Chicano Classics #7

In Spanish.

With a keen eye, a spare hand, and an underpinning of humor, Rolando Hinojosa depicts life in the Chicano Rio Grande Valley during the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s - the people and their quirks, customs, and dreams. Hinojosa writes in a style that has often been compared to that of Thornton Wilder and William Faulkner: characters speak for themselves and all places have a story to tell. This is a new Spanish-language edition of the original novel in the Klail City Death Trip Series.

The Clásicos Chicanos/Chicano Classics series is intended to ensure the accessibility of deserving works of Chicano literature that had become unavailable or that were in danger of it. Each volume includes an introduction that explains its Chicano context and a bibliography of works by and about the author. The series is designed to help in the restoration of Raza literary history and permit the continued availability of our literature.
