This novel(?) is a summary of the situation of US/Mexico border people, and then some poetry about it, with a lot of Spanish in it. I never understand what I'm supposed to do with this kind of literature. It makes me feel weird about being white. Like, it's stupid that people I share a race with were mean to the people who were already here, but I feel like there's not much I can do about it, besides trying not to be racist. Anyway. I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about it. I learned a lot about Chicano/border culture, but I wouldn't call it "fun" reading.
