Wierd But Welcome Snippet of a Review for Mexico: A Traveler's Literary Companion

Just noted in Northern California's East Bay Express: "Tequila sunrise: Warts, squash sandwiches, an exploding kitchen, and visions of a woman who 'would make herself throw up into a bedpan and later drink the vomit' flit through Mexico: A Traveler's Literary Companion (Whereabouts, $14.95). Stories by 24 writers are arranged regionally by Berkeley's C.M. Mayo. Staking a bivouac in the border wars, she declares on the first page that Mexico's boundaries have been 'brutally cut back by the United States.'" It's news to me that I live in Berkeley, however. Neither do I own a Che T-Shirt. (What's Che doing in this post anyway?)
