Rose in 1992 and Other Tales
is a new and greatly expanded edition of Keller's Tales
of El Huitlacoche (1984), a distinguished collection
of Chicano short stories. This volume contains the original four
stories that have become favorites among many readers along with
three new tales. All display "an infectious humor and vitality where
English and Spanish are richly, exuberantly intermingled" (Anne
Tyler). One of the stories was published in the Best
of the Small Presses collection (Avon Books, 1977),
and the book won the "Writer's Choice" award sponsored by the National
Endowment for the Arts in 1985.
