The empanada brotherhood : a novel by John Treadwell Nichols( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's Greenwich Village in the 1960s, where expatriates, artists, and colorful bums meet to exchange ideas and have a good time in New York." "A tiny stand selling empanadas near the corner of Bleecker and MacDougal Streets is the center of the world for the shy narrator, an aspiring writer who has just graduated from college. At the stand he falls ill with a crowd of kooky outcasts from Argentina who introduce him to their tragedies, friendships, melodramatic dreams - and women, particularly a young flamenco dancer from Buenos Aires. Charming, insightful, and rewarding, this deceptively simple novel is a tale told by a master. It is a wise coming-of-age story, full of joy and touched by heartbreak, that captures a special time and place with extraordinary empathy and humor."--Jacket

"Nichols has gathered writing that span more than thirty years and range from idyllic reflections on nature to unmerciful satires on impending Armageddon. We see the author as a young man on the trip to Central America that gave him a social conscience that wouldn't quit; as a hunter, hiker, and naturalist on rivers and in mountains increasingly threatened by development; and as a novelist watching in embarrassed disbelief as his book The Milagro Beanfield War is made into a movie that succeeds in spite of Hollywood's best efforts to garble the outcome."--Jacket

Enchanted with the place and its people, she has remained there ever since." "Jenny performed with such luminaries as Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Malvina Reynolds, and Earl Robinson, all social activists who used music as a voice for world peace, civil liberties, and human rights." "She later supported such cases as the Salt of the Earth strike, American Indian rights, and the rising Chicano movement. Through it all Jenny raised a family and continued her music. Now in her nineties, Jenny remains a performer and a champion of the people."--Jacket
