    PEN-Faulkner Award-winning author T. Coraghessan Boyle weaves together the stories of two families in Southern California: one affluent, the other destitute. As Boyle creates a counterpoint of personal needs, civic responsibility, and social custom, each family's quest for the American Dream fuels deep fear and anger that ultimately lead to a perilous confrontation.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No I wouldn't. The narrator was not good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was good. The life of undocumented workers shows how terrible people and their hatred of people because of race can affect how they are treated. The story shows just how both sides can be as bad as the other.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Barbara Rosenblat?

    Anyone else.


    Did The Tortilla Curtain inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The fact that the narrator keeps taking loud breaths throughout the story was very distracting.
