When the counter-canon itself becomes canonized, it's time to reload. This is the notion that animates New Border Voices, an anthology of recent and rarely seen writing by Borderlands artists from El Paso to Brownsvilleand a hundred miles on either side. Challenging the assumption that borderlands writing is the privileged product of the 1970s and 80s, the vibrant community represented in this collection offers tasty bits of regional fare that will appeal to a wide range of readers and students.
Among the contributions are:
A Southern Renaissance for Texas Letters
Jose E. Limon
The Texas-Mexico Border: This Writer's Sense of Place
Rolando Hinojosa-Smith
The Rain Parade
Paul Pedroza.
