unusual way of writing, the personal connection to Mexico comes out. A first hand, no holds bar depiction of Mexico from the authors point of view. I enjoyed the chapter on Oaxaca and liked the last chapter where she delves into the life of Frida Kahlo. This was written in the 1990 so to be taken with that perspective.
