From Our Editors

Mexicans enjoy a strange relationship with the rest of North America. Guillermo Gomez-Pena examines his heritage in Dangerous Border Crossers: The Artist Talks Back. Gomez-Pena writes in Spanish and English as he reflects on a series of Mexican and Chicano communities. It contains a series of poems, chronicles, essays, radio scripts and reflections in which Gomez-Pena tackles such subjects as Mexican-American politics, culture and identity. Gomez-Pena speaks up for minorities in a convincing and humorous manner, as he shows readers the lifestyles of different Mexican communities.
