The selections are as diverse as Hispanic culture itself and as varied as the personalities of their authors. To befound side-by-side here are Max Martínez's outrageous challenge of racial and social structures, Roberta Fernández's subversion of the English language, Nicholasa Mohr's humorous attack on patriarchy, Judith Ortiz Cofer's poetic evocation of chilhood and biculturalism, and much more. Hispanic writers of the United States are engaged in an aesthetic and cultural experiment that will result in a re-defined canon and a new identity for the country as a whole. They are re-focusing our perception of ourselves as a people and a culture. The pressure and the commitment to do so, of course, makes for excellence and innovation in literary expression. It also makes for enjoyable reading. Short fiction for Hispanic writers of the United States is recommended for the general fiction reader and for use in high school and college literature classes in search of a multicultural perpective"--On back cover
