Chola Salvation

Publication Date:  April 30, 2021

This award-winning collection of short stories focuses on the lives of Mexican and Chicanx characters living in East Los Angeles. In these narratives, working-class men and women struggle with self-hatred, economic survival and patriarchal oppression in urban America and educational institutions. Some protagonists succumb to their circumstances while others transcend them through wit and creativity.

Sample stories by visiting the "Writing" page on this site.
