    schema:description "From the Publisher: Born in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico in 1910, Josefina Maria Niggli was one of the first Latina writers to have her work published in the United States-and thus one of the first to introduce American audiences to the culture and people flourishing along the U.S.-Mexico border. Well ahead of what is now called Chicano literature, her writings-spanning a broad range of genres, subjects, and styles-offer an insider's view of the everyday lives little known or noted outside of their native milieu. In Niggli's plays, for instance, these often invisible working class Mexicans were literally elevated to the public stage, their hidden reality given expression. A long-overdue gathering of Niggli's work, this volume showcases the writer's remarkable literary versatility, as well as the groundbreaking nature of her writing, which in many ways established a blueprint for future generations of writers and readers of Chicano literature. This collection includes Niggli's most famous and influential work, Mexican Village-a literary chronicle of Hidalgo, Mexico, which explores the distinct nature and tensions of Mexican life-along with her novel Step Down, Elder Brother, and five of her most well-known plays."@en ;
