From the Inside Flap
We received an overwhelming response to our call for literature for this project, which took us by surprise. We expected the response to be localized to our region of the U.S. (South Texas)but the response came from all parts of the country. From the East Coast to the West Coast, the North and the South. The answer was loud and passionate. America the great is alive and well, and eager to lend its voice to the cause for justice and the American way.
This anthology has become one of the most important projects we have undertaken. But the most significant aspects of it are the contributions by the artists and writers who submitted the works that were selected to appear in this collection. Thanks to our friend Xanath Caraza for a powerful introduction. Although Xanath originally wrote it in Spanish, we felt that her exceedingly well crafted preface deserved to be included in English as well.
We have no doubt that the reader will agree that the Bad Hombres &Nasty Women anthology is one of the most significant books of the year if not the decade. Thank you for reading. Please share this book and its message widely.
