In Fernandez's own Spanish version of her award-winning book, Intaglio: A Novel in Six Stories, the reader discovers a tightly-woven coming-of-age novel made up of sensitive portraits of six extraordinary women born in the early twentieth century near the Texas-Mexican border. By observing the lives of her various mentors, Nenita learns to rise above the limitations that the culture of la frontera imposed on women of her mother's generation who nonetheless were able to find outlets for their creative expressions.
