Muy macho : Latino men confront their manhood( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Homeboy to Latin Lover, America entertains a host of images about Latino men, yet all are variations on the Macho Man, virile and brash, full of passion and testosterone. From today's best-known as well as emerging Latino writers, poet and editor Ray Gonzalez has gathered sixteen personal essays on machismo and masculinity written especially for Muy Macho. The result is a rich and exciting collection of men talking about themselves, about their wives and lovers, about the fragile love between fathers and sons, and about the process by which men learn from and teach each other how to be men. Emotionally honest and powerfully written, the voices of Muy Macho break the "cult of silence" among Latino men which prevents our understanding the true nature of machismo

"Following the success of the Flash Fiction and Sudden Fiction series, editors Robert Shapard and James Thomas join with Ray Gonzalez in offering some of the best new and recent short-short stories by U.S. Latino and Latin American writers. Featuring an introduction by the much-lauded Argentine writer Luisa Valenzuela, Sudden Fiction Latino celebrates work from stars like Junot Dfaz, Sandra Cisneros, and Roberto Bolofio: masters like Gabriel Garda Marquez, Isabel Allende, and Jorge Luis Borges; and rising talents like Andrea Saenz, Daniel Alarcon, and Alicita Rodriguez. From as little as half a page long to a few pages, these stories are moving, challenging, humorous, artful, sometimes political, and altogether spectacular - and reveal significant distinctions and common ground between U.S. Latino and Latin American literature"--Jacket
