Four Star Review

The star tab isn't working for me, so my last few reviews note the number of stars. This book is a collection of prose and poetry from Martinez. For the most part it's provocative and at times hilarious. Some of the pieces are more serious and thoughtful. My favorite excerpt is the one where she explains how Latinos choose to self-identify in the US: Chicana/o, Latina/o, Mexican, Mexican-American or Hispanic. And, with each category she says more.

The author is a published author of a few books of poetry and is/was a reporter for a Catholic newspaper.
