7 editions published between 1989 and 1996 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents full-length collections of poetry by three outstanding Chicana poets. Alicia Gaspar de Alba cultivates a poetry of paradox that explores the borders between politics and the sexes. Maria Herrera-Sobek's collection is suffused with memories that keep alive the dead, and that, with the help of ars poetica, reorder lives and events that have been blown away. Demetria Martinez has written a sensitive, caring and morally and politically committed work."--Googlebooks
