Overview
Sex as a Political Condition: A Border Novel is a raucous, hilarious journey through political dangers that come in all shapes, cup sizes, and sexual identities, a trip into the wild, sometimes outrageous world of the Texas-Mexico border and all geographical and anatomical points south. Honore del Castillo runs the family curio shop in the backwater border town of Escandon, Texas, and fears dying in front of his TV like some six-pack Jose in his barrio. Encouraged by his friend Trotsky, he becomes politically active--smuggling refugees, airlifting guns to Mexican revolutionaries, negotiating with radical Chicana lesbians--but the naked truths he faces are more often naked than true and constantly threaten to unman him. When a convoy loaded with humanitarian aid bound for Nicaragua pulls into Escandon, his journey to becoming a true revolutionary hero begins, first on Escandon's international bridge and then on the highways of Mexico. But not until both the convoy and Honore's mortality and manhood are threatened in Guatemala does he finally confront the complications of his love for his wife and daughter, his political principles, the stench of human fear, and ultimately what it means to be a principled man in a screwed-up world."
