Sapogonia: (an Anti-romance in 3/8 Meter)
In her second novel, Castillo (the author of "The Mixquiahuala Letters" ) examines the obsessive struggle between a man and a woman, two natives of the metaphorical country of Sapogonia. In their battle for control over each other, the author subtly defines the struggle of all mestizos--the conflict of a mixed heritage of Conquistador and Conquered--which can never be resolved.
