Christina MacSweeney This slim novel is a study in fragmentary feeling, a book of overlapping fictions—the story of a woman telling her own story, and translating newly discovered work by a Mexican poet, except maybe that when she’s doing that she is also telling her own story, or possibly a ghost story.

"Becoming Mexican American is a sumptuous book--informative, readable, and passionate. Here, at last, is the true successor to Carey McWilliams' North From Mexico.

A brilliant voice from a new generation continues the saga."--Richard Rodriguez, author of Hunger of MemoryReviews:   Mexican American authors and others have cited “American Dirt” as evidence of a publishing culture where white voices are valued above others.
