Summary
"Vicente Fox's election as Mexico's president marked the triumph of another Mexico, a vital, energetic, and creative Mexico tracked by Quinones for over six years and perceptively presented in this book." "Quinones merges observation with interviews and storytelling in his search for an authentic modern Mexico. He finds it in part in emigrants, people who use wits and imagination to strike out on their own. In stories from north of the border - about Oaxacan basketball leagues in southern California and the late singer Chalino Sanchez whose songs of drug smugglers spurred the popularity of the narcocorrido - Quinones shows how another Mexico is reinventing itself in America today. From the fringes of the country, Quinones suggests, emerge some of the most telling and central truths about modern Mexico and how it is changing."--BOOK JACKET
