9780826342553: Antonio's Gun And Delfino's Dream: True Tales of Mexican Migration

Sam Quinones's first book, True Tales From Another Mexico, was acclaimed for the way it peered into the corners of that country for its larger truths and complexities. Antonio's Gun and Delfino's Dream, Quinones's second collection of nonfiction tales, does the same for one of the most important issues of our times: the migration of Mexicans to the United States.

Quinones has covered the world of Mexican immigrants for the last thirteen years--from Chicago to Oaxaca, Michoacan to southeast Los Angeles, Tijuana to Texas. Along the way, he has uncovered stories that help illuminate all that Mexicans seek when they come north, how they change their new country, and are changed by it.

Here are the stories of the Henry Ford of velvet painting in Ciudad Juarez, the emergence of opera in Tijuana, the bizarre goings-on in the L.A. suburb of South Gate, and of the drug-addled colonies of Old World German Mennonites in Chihuahua. Through it all winds the tale of Delfino Juarez, a young construction worker, and modern-day Huckleberry Finn, who had to leave his village to change it.

Descripción University of New Mexico Press. Softcover. Estado de conservación: New. 328 pages. Softcover. New book. LATIN AMERICA. Sam Quinones's first book, True Tales From Another Mexico, was acclaimed for the way it peered into the corners of that country for its larger truths and complexities. Antonio's Gun and Delfino's Dream, Quinones's second collection of nonfiction tales, does the same for one of the most important issues of our times: the migration of Mexicans to the United States.

Through it all winds the tale of Delfino Juarez, a young construction worker, and modern-day Huckleberry Finn, who had to leave his village to change it. "Sam Quinones is a border legend. For those in the know, his reportage has been cause for celebration. Now, with Antonio's Gun and Delfino's Dream he takes us behind the lines and undercover. He puts a human face on 'illegal immigration' and he gives us stunning stories of survival and dread. However, he accomplishes something more valuable than a mere parade of sensational set pieces--Quinones starts to put the complex issues in the light of understanding and hard-won wisdom."--Luis A. Urrea, author of The Devil's Highway and The Hummingbird's Daughter "Antonio's Gun and Delfino's Dream is journalism that doesn't replay or expand on the clichŽd or stereotyped stories of the exotic border, of mystical or threatening mejicanos. Genuinely original work, what great fiction and nonfiction aspire to be, these are stories that stop time and remind us how great reading is."--Dagoberto Gilb, author of Hecho en Tejas Sam Quinones lived in Mexico for ten years writing freelance for a variety of U.S. publications. In 1998 he was a recipient of the Alicia Patterson Fellowship. In 2001 he published a highly acclaimed collection of stories about contemporary Mexico, True Tales from Another Mexico: The Lynch Mob, the Popsicle Kings, Chalino, and the Bronx (UNM Press). He now lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Sheila, and daughter, Kate, and is a staff writer for the Los Angeles Times. ". . . a keen look at the migrant economy . . . [in] nine skillful, moving stories. Quinones layers with the sociological, economic, and historical context of 60 years of immigration . . . [in these] very fine pieces of literary journalism." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review ". . . journalism that doesn't replay or expand on the cliched or stereotyped stories of the exotic border . . . Genuinely original work. . . ." -- San Francisco Chronicle "Where others see unremarkable immigrants, Quinones finds gold . . . he has filed the best dispatches about Mexican migration and its effects on the United States and Mexico, bar none." -- Los Angeles Times "Quinones' book humanizes a political issue that has become sloganized into meaninglessness . . . [he]delves deeply and with rich and illustrative detail into the cultural ramifications of our shaky borders." -- Santa Fe Reporter "This book humanizes the immigration issue . . . by focusing on in-depth profiles of migrants on both sides of the border and telling their tales with empathy and a novelist's eye for character, narrative structure, and psychological detail." -- Bloomsbury Review "The strength of Quinones' collection of stories rests in his ability to blur stories of departure and settlement.The accessibility of these 'true tales'.make Quinones' monograph ideally suited for undergraduate classes in borderlands, US West, and California history." -- Southern California Quar. book.
