Bordering fires : the vintage book of contemporary Mexican and Chicano/a literature ( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 956 libraries worldwide
As the descendants of Mexican immigrants have settled throughout the United States, a great literature has emerged, but its correspondences with the literature of Mexico have gone largely unobserved. In this, the first anthology to combine writing from both sides of the Mexican-U.S. border, Cristina García presents a richly cross-cultural conversation. Beginning with Mexican masters such as Alfonso Reyes and Juan Rulfo, García highlights historic voices such as "the godfather of Chicano literature" Rudolfo Anaya, and Gloria Anzaldúa, who made a powerful case for language that reflects bicultural experience. From the fierce evocations of Chicano reality in Jimmy Santiago Baca's Poem IX to the breathtaking images of identity in Coral Bracho's poem "Fish of Fleeting Skin," this collection of fiction, essays, and poetry offers an new vantage point on our continent--and on the best of contemporary literature.--From publisher description
