Review:

"I found myself confounded into silence by the magnitude of the author's pain and by the confessional frankness in her tone as she writes about the traumas inflicted upon her and her sisters... the author possesses great courage and resilience... Telling this story must have taken awesome strength... I can imagine that survivors of abuse might find her calmness encouraging: it suggests healing is possible even in the worst cases. I believe that Mendez-Negrete has made a positive contribution to the feminist literature on trauma and incest." Bookslut "To tell this story took an inordinate amount of courage, to have survived it makes me marvel at the power of the human spirit. As a reader, one feels deeply grateful for the privilege of being granted into its confidence. Josie Mendez-Negrete writes that the healing is not in the telling, but perhaps it resides in us, the listeners. May this story, then, travel far." Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street "This book is the genuine song of the survivor, and the narrator's personal story is also a political reality of the Chicano/a and Latino/a community, an ugly beast fed on silence that must be both contained and confronted."--Alicia Gaspar de Alba, Latino Studies "[Las hijas de Juan] is the childhood story of courage and resistance to patriarchy too frightening to be imagined and too hurtful to be forgotten."--Norma L. Cardenas, Journal of Latinos and Education

From the Publisher:

"Las Hijas De Juan" shatters the silence, bearing witness to experiences of incest within a working-class Mexican American family. Both a feminist memoir and a hopeful meditation on healing, it is Josie Mendez-Negrete's story of how she and her siblings and mother survived years of violence and sexual abuse at the hands of her father. Mendez-Negrete was born in Mexico, in the state of Zacatecas. She recalls a joyous childhood growing up in the midst of Tabasco, a vibrant town filled with extended family. Her father, though, had dreams of acquiring wealth in el norte. He worked sun-up to sun-down in the fields of south Texas. Returning home to Mexico, his pockets full of dollars, he spent evenings drinking and womanizing. When Mendez-Negrete was eleven, her father moved the family to the United States, where they finally settled in California's Santa Clara Valley. There her father began molesting his daughters, viciously beating them and their mother. Within the impoverished immigrant family, the abuse continued for years, until a neighbour brought it to the attention of child welfare authorities. Mendez-Negrete's father was tried, convicted, and imprisoned. "Las Hijas De Juan" is told chronologically, from the time Mendez-Negrete was a child until she was a young adult trying, along with the rest of her family, to come to terms with her father's brutal legacy. It is a harrowing story of abuse and shame compounded by cultural and linguistic isolation and a system of patriarchy that devalues the experiences of women and girls. At the same time, "Las Hijas De Juan" is an inspiring tale, filled with strong women and hard-won solace found in traditional Mexican cooking, songs, and storytelling.
