As Our Barrio Turns: Who the Yoke B On?
Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. New from SPD. In AS OUR BARRIO TURNS ... WHO THE YOKE B ON?, alurista poet-filetero filosofo snaps shots of his singular history in wickedly funny, blasphemous travelogues through his youth and activist days. His scrapbook leapfrogs from military academy in Mxico to militant politics in '60s San Diego, boyhood challenges of Catholic dogma, adult challenges in building a Chicano cultural movement. But it's not nostalgia that alurista traffics in -- it's the revisiting of the past that may hold clues to the map of the movimiento's millennium movidas. Pick up your Neo-Aztec battle armour and get ready to rumble in a vortex of language corridos and time-space slippage - Juan Felipe Herrera.
