Abstract:

"The stories in Laundromat Blues vibrate, alive with the rich vision and haunting voices of Lupe Solis, Jr. Illuminating the many borders of an American existence, this collection sounds the terrors of poverty and the hunger of love. The prose Solis gives us, sometimes melodic, sometimes too discordant for comfort, always echoes with a fine truth. It leaves us, finally, with a rich but small hope played like a grace note of this blues medley, hope fueled by family histories and the courage of each new generation."--BOOK JACKET.
