"Based on Josefina Borquez, a working-class woman whose difficult life spanned some of the seminal events in early-twentieth-century Mexican history, Poniatowska's Jesusa is a tough, coarse-mouthed, cantankerous character who pushes contradiction to its limits. Mystical yet practical, she faces the obstacles in her path with gritty determination. A native of Oaxaca, Jesusa loses her mother at a young age, and she lives with her father until one of his girlfriends stabs her. Moved to her godmother's house, where she serves as a maid, Jesusa is reunited with her father during the Mexican Revolution, and joins the cavalry unit in the army of General Jesus Carranza. She marries another solider, a chronic womanizer who systematically abuses and finally abandons her. After the Revolution, embittered by its failure to live up to its promises to the poor, Jesusa finds work in Mexico City, first as a domestic, then in a series of factories, and begins her long history of run-ins with the police." "Poniatowska documents a life of brutal deprivation, extraordinary hardship, and hardscrabble humor while providing a unique perspective on politics and the place of women in twentieth-century Mexico."--BOOK JACKET.

"Mamá, ¿allá atrás se acaba el mundo?" Esta frase abre el camino a una historia fascinante: la de un hombre de enorme talento destinado a desentrañar los misterios de la astronomía. Lorenzo de Tena, inconformista y rebelde, deberá luchar contra las desigualdades sociales, las trampas burocráticas y las tentaciones políticas para ver realizada su vocación. Pero los mayores retos de su búsqueda no vendrán de la ciencia sino de la cara más oculta de las personas, la que esconde las pasiones y los sentimientos. Una novela que, como un telescopio, nos acerca a los desafíos más inalcanzables: las estrellas y el amor.--Desde la descripción de la editorial.

"Long though it is, this English version of Tinísima, Poniatowska's novel based closely on the life of Italian photographer Tina Modotti (1896-1942), represents a considerable abridgment of the original. Implicitly, however, the textual recreation is the work of Poniatowska herself, who signs the acknowledgments, thanks Katherine Silver (whose translation is excellent), and writes a new dedication for the book"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
