Bad Hombres & Nasty Women: Anthology Paperback – May 16, 2017
Enhance your purchase
We compiled a collection of writings and art in this book from some of those bad apples (even though some, we suppose, are good people).
We just know that everybody is gonna love this book. We make the best books. And everybody knows it. It's the most beautiful book. It's got gold letters on the front and back cover. And not to mention an image of the greatest president America has EVER had. Make America great again? Mission accomplished.
P.s. You're welcome, America!

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.

The Introduction itself is offered in English, then in its original Spanish; while I felt the English rendition included excessively high vocabulary, I appreciated its brief quotes from the entries that would follow -- hints of themes to be touched upon. As I kept reading, I realized that the quoted bits did not strike a chord for me with the intensity that other lines of text did (p. 7, "that veil of black and white"). This made evident to me the likelihood that each reader will take something different from this collection.
The poems tackle not just racism but also sexism; fictional pieces range from current to dystopian. I was encouraged to see an LGBT-themed short story included, which is why I wish the typos that I spotted there had been corrected -- that would amount to my sternest critique. But now that I've mentioned that tale, what impressed me most was how the book's contributors took hold of what were intended as pejoratives (obvious from the book's title), to adopt and redefine them as identifying not the disreputable but the artistic.
Readers should brace themselves for not just adult language, but mature themes as well (e.g. some horrifying reasons behind undocumented crossings). Amidst serious and somber tones, there's still irony and humor. I was impressed to discover -- based on the contributor bios listed at the end -- that writers and artists from not just my own area of south Texas, but also much further away, lent a hand into creating this anthology. The bios have even inspired me to research additional works published and released by the individuals named.
