Mixquiahuala–Place Where Corn Grows
Books have lives. My first novel was born to the public in the 1980s, when recognition of U.S. Latinas started. My short novel was written in the 1970s when I was in my twenties. As a self-taught writer, a brown “American” woman of Mexican background, even as I worked on the story I never expected it to be published.
Thirty-three years after it was first printed it remains in publication.
