Rita and Los Angeles

Leo Romero


The American West provides a backdrop for seven satisfying tales in the author’s debut collection. Rita and Los Angeles is a book about growing up and growing old, learning lessons from the past that are relevant today, and being an outsider in an alien and sometimes hostile world.

“Leo Romero’s stories are unearthed memories, leading us through the struggles of a young man to find himself.” —Rudolfo Anaya
