Descripción

"This difficult book to write is filled with awe and acts of learning and doing. It is my first tribute to my home, but it will not be the last. The title essay is a transition piece toward distance, wisdom, and the future. Forthcoming essays will deal with the environmental and cultural realities of life on the border as the new century arrives.My essays are not about polarity or creating new borders between the frailty of people and the vulnerability of the desert terrain. They are about taking the consequences of our daily lives and finding new hope as we wander across a precious landscape we were fortunate to have been given." This book has 223 pages. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Ray Gonzalez. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 063873

Críticas:

Border Regional Library Association honors Ray Gonzalez for lifetime contributions to literature of the Southwest "A haunted book, in the best sense of the term. . . . He brings readers into a realm of rattlesnake dreams, UFOs, inscrutable lizards, a haunted house and a vast panorama of desert dwellers. . . . Gonzalez sees the past in all its grandeur and all its ruin." Albuquerque Journal "Readers who want to wake up y oler la cafebrewed by the Chicano literary movement would do well to keep Ray Gonzalez high on their reading lists." Dallas Morning News "His poet's eye captures the colors and silences of the desert, while his lively sense of humor and his unfailing honesty show us a desert boy's life. . . . A rich kaleidoscope of life in the Southwest becomes immediate for the reader." Rocky Mountain News "Profoundly contemplative, often lyrical, and sometimes humorous, Memory Fever is a work rich in images of El Paso, of family life, student life and religious culture and of the desert, a place both beautiful and fearsome...Gonzalez is a writer of rare depth and sensitivity." El Paso Times"
