It's April 1969, and fourteen-year-old Yolanda Sahagún can hardly wait to see her favorite brother, Chuy, newly returned from Vietnam. But when he arrives at the Welcome Home party the family has prepared in his honor it's clear that the war has changed him. The transformation of Chuy is only one of the challenges that Yolanda and the rest of her family face. This powerful coming-of-age novel, winner of the 1999 Chicano/Latino Literary Contest, is a touching and funny account of a summer that is still remembered as a crossroads in American life. Yolanda and her brothers and sisters learn how to be men and women and how to be Americans as well as Mexican Americans. "A captivating portrayal . . . .the novel is challenging, warm, provocative, often humorous, always engaging."--Rudolfo Anaya "Patricia Santana's Motorcycle Ride on the Sea of Tranquillity will take you on an exhilarating journey through the tortured landscape of the late 1960s, and show you how the stench of a brutal foreign war and revolutionary winds at home swept into the lives on one Mexican American family in Southern California. . . . Santana takes her place among those new Chicana writers who are refashioning the face of American literature for the twenty-first century."--Jorge Mariscal, University of California, San Diego, author of Aztlan and Viet Nam: Chicano and Chicana Experiences of the War

Is this sequel to Patricia Santana's critically acclaimed Motorcycle Ride on the Sea of Tranquility, we find Yolanda Sahagun now living in the university dorms when a series of traumatic events forces her to reexamine her life. Yolanda visits her parents' hometown of El Grullo, Mexico, struggling to understand the ghosts in her life - her mother, her father, and her seemingly idyllic childhood. This is a story of Yolanda's initiation into womanhood as well as her fierce struggle to make sure her family does nut dissolve. Family and sexual politics; love, death, and abandonment; the struggle to resolve a personal identity in the context of a shattered, first-generation immigrant American family - these are the hugely painful obstructions Yolanda must surmount or incorporate into her own being as she makes her life's journey.

Ends of Assimilation examines how Chicano literature imagines the conditions and costs of cultural change, arguing that its thematic preoccupation with assimilation illuminates the function of literature. John Alba Cutler shows how mid-century sociologists advanced a model of assimilation that ignored the interlinking of race, gender, and sexuality and characterized American culture as homogeneous, stable, and exceptional. He demonstrates how Chicano literary works from the postwar period to the present understand culture as dynamic and self-consciously promote literature as a medium for influencing the direction of cultural change. With original analyses of works by canonical and noncanonical writers--from Am?rico Paredes, Sandra Cisneros, and Jimmy Santiago Baca to Estela Portillo Trambley, Alfredo V?a, and Patricia Santana--Ends of Assimilation demands that we reevaluate assimilation, literature, and the very language we use to talk about culture.

ΣΤΗΝ ΠΑΓΩΜΕΝΗ ΛΕΥΚΟΤΗΤΑ ΤΟΥ ΒΕΡΜΟΝΤ… Ο Φρανκ Ραθ νόμιζε πως είχε ξεμπερδέψει με τις δολοφονίες όταν παρέδωσε το σήμα του αστυνομικού για να γίνει ιδιωτικός ντετέκτιβ και να μεγαλώσει την κόρη του ως ο μοναδικός της κηδεμόνας. Όμως η αστυνομία στην απομακρυσμένη ορεινή κοινότητα που ζει βρίσκει ένα εγκαταλελειμμένο αυτοκίνητο παρατημένο στον δρόμο και διαπιστώνει πως ανήκει σε μια πανέμορφη έφηβη που έχει εξαφανιστεί χωρίς κανένα ίχνος. Του ζητείται λοιπόν να αναλάβει την έρευνα… ΤΟ ΚΑΚΟ ΚΑΡΑΔΟΚΕΙ… Αυτή είναι μόνο η αρχή καθώς οι εξαφανίσεις νεαρών γυναικών διαδέχονται η μία την άλλη και ο Ραθ αναγκάζεται να αντιμετωπίσει τόσο τις συνέπειες του βίαιου και επώδυνου παρελθόντος του όσο και τις σκοτεινότερες εκδηλώσεις της ανθρώπινης ψυχής. ΚΑΙ ΚΑΝΕΙΣ ΔΕΝ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΑΣΦΑΛΗΣ.
