Nothing is better for a teacher than to be able to pair Ginsberg (Whitman in the Supermarket) with Serros' veggies in the frozen foods section.
For anyone with an awareness--tangential or full on--with the southwest, this poetry is not to be missed.
This book is a homage to Serros' mother who passed on, leaving the artistic touch to her daughter. Thus, Chicana Falsa proves to be a testament to Serros' role as a torch bearer and carrier of excellent artistic and cultural contributions by brilliant Chicana escritoras.
This book is an excellent read for students being introducted to Chicana/o literature. Students in high school and college will benefit either in creative writing courses, literature courses or women's studies courses.
Este libro tiene la energia y fuerza que se requiere para contar nuestras vidas con honor, dignidad y memoria. Viva Michele! Gracias for this, your gift to us!
Read this book and then read her follow up: How to be a Chicana Role Model. Then later in spring 2006, pre-order her upcoming work: Honey Blonde Chicana. Serros writes biting satire like no other Chicana writing today. You won't be disappointed.
