1985 Writer’s Choice Award, National Endowment for the Arts

Zapata Rose in 1992 is a greatly expanded edition of Keller’s Tales of El Huitlacoche (1984), a distinguished collection of Chicano short stories. This volume contains the original four stories along with three additional tales. All display “an infectious humor and vitality where English and Spanish are richly, exuberantly intermingled” (Anne Tyler).

“The zany verbal equivalent of a light and sound show.” —The New York Times Book Review
