Cultural writing. Essays. Latina Studies. This book is a compilation of essays written by talented contemporary Latina writers in the United States. These essays illuminate the ways life and craft are entwined and stand as a courageous testament to the odds Latina writers must overcome to clear the space and achieve a voice in our society. Honest and open, the selected writers discuss the historical, linguistic, political, economic, and cultural realities that have shaped them as women writers of color in the United States. Corpi’s anthology is a major contribution to the growing body of work by insightful and politically conscious Latina writers, broadening the scope beyond nationalist literary borders.
