Synopsis

Fostering creativity due to adversity or poverty or by breaking rules of stoic propriety, the resiliency and spirit of Latino writers, journalists, and editors bring pride and significance to their heritage. Since European colonization of what would become the United States began in 1542, Latinos have documented both their experiences and the experiences of others. Latino Writers and Journalists profiles 151 Latino Americans, such as Ruben Martinez, Laura Esquivel, and Isabel Allende. This exciting volume profiles the valor and tenacity of the Latino experience - from daily life to fighting prejudice and small-mindedness, teaching children pride in La Raza, and the need for assimilation. Filled with emotion and intelligence, the stories of Latino writers and journalists speak of courage and a love of life as they claim their rightful place in literature and journalism. Entries in this biographical volume focus on poets, playwrights, screenwriters, children's book authors, journalists, editors, publishers, and others who have worked to advance the role of Latinos in this field.

Whether an individual was born in the United States or emigrated from such countries as Mexico, Chile, Ecuador, or Spain, each Latino profiled has made significant contributions to the fields of writing and journalism in the United States. Additional features include a bibliography that provides listings of anthologies, biographies, critical studies, and literary movements pertaining to Latino writers and journalists. One subject index allows the reader to search by such subjects as "Chicano movement" and "magical realism." Other indexes organize subjects by their year of birth and by their ethnicity. This entertaining volume is enhanced throughout by numerous black-and-white photographs of the Latino writers and journalists presented.
