Great book. A collection of letters from Teresa to her gringa friend throughout their travels and lives, from when they meet in Mexico into middle age. The author suggests that you read them in three particular orders, omitting some depending on what "mood" you choose. I chose "quixotic" and it was lovely. Then I went and read the letters I skipped and got a different perspective on how she's crafting her narrative. Castillo is a Chicana poet and a fantastic writer. Highly recommended.
