El Paso Times Reviews "An Avocado from Michoacan"

Today's El Paso Times features Rigoberto Gonzalez's glowing review of Tameme's first bilingual chapbook--- Agustin Cadena's short story "Carne verde, piel negra" translated by Yours Truly as "An Avocado from Michoacan". "A gem of a story," writes Gonzalez, "reminiscent of Juan Rulfo and Mariano Azuela." Click here for the full review.... and by the way, another wonderful short story by Cadena appears in my anthology, Mexico: A Traveler's Literary Companion. Cadena blogs, too, at El vino y la hiel. More anon.
