This was a contemporary and sensitive portrayal of the clash of Mexican, American and Mexican-American cultures. Mr. Urrea knows his subject well and tells his tale, cleverly educating his reader about the how Mexicans embrace American culture, but on their own terms.
The performer was a good fit for the mood and character, and characters, of the Story. Her spanish accent was natural and unaffected and added to my enjoyment. But, her mispronunciation of a handful of spanish words was painfully distracting to a bilingual listener.
