La Doña, La Llorona is a poetry book about alienation and inclusion. With imperviousness and ferocity, this famous Mexican ghost crisscrosses the northern border and makes both nations her own. La Llorona is not a sympathetic figure; she preys on children and drowns them in rivers. The stories highlight her pride, beauty, and vanity. In La Doña, La Llorona, the ghost is a woman with a past, a story common to American mythology. She is Mexican, American, a woman unafraid, the most terrifying of specters. In a nation where immigrants face deportation, even death, La Doña, La Llorona is a resounding voice of victory. The ultimate American, she crushes those who bind her. Undefeated. Indefatigable. A fire on the prairie. Rolling in, the blood of the tide.
