Voices in First Person

Though I finished drafts of a play titled “Aztlan Apeiron”, I’ve never really settled into it and thus have never produced it. One of the reasons is its about fathers and sons. There’s everything and nothing to say about such a subject. Though I hate using Latino characters in white stereotypes, i.e., the gangsta monologue included in this book, when Lori asked if I’d write something for the book I realized I grew up with friends who became the very stereotypes I thought I didn’t know.

From a review on Amazon – “This collection sparkles more than its predecessors because of its dynamic design, featuring black-and-white photographs and line illustrations incorporated with the text in a collagelike magazine layout. Few pieces are longer than a spread or two, and the entire package encourages endless browsing, flipping, and double-dipping.”
