Latina
by Lillian Castillo-Speed




Overview -
Latina brings together a remarkable selection of writings, gathering essays, short stories, and excerpts from novels that have attracted a wide readership and critical praise, as well as original pieces by lesser-known authors. Many of the works here draw on the special experience of being a member of a minority group; all speak to the universal human condition. The contributors include such well-known names as Sandra Cisneros, Julia Alvarez, Denise Chavez, Ana Castillo, Cristina Garcia, and Sandra Benitez. Mexican Americans, Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and other women of the Americas are all represented. They write of their heritage; of their lives in an often alienating land; of the joys and sorrows of their particular communities; and of their political concerns, their hopes, and their dreams.
