Aristeo Brito, translated by David William Foster
a bilingual edition

Clásicos Chicanos/ Chicano Classics #5

Winner of the 1990 Western States Book Award for Fiction

Using legends, folklore, and oral history, Aristeo Brito weaves the struggles of the oppressed and exploited agrarian community of Presidio, Texas, through three historical periods. Greed personified, the devil swings back and forth between Presidio and Ojinaga (across the border in Mexico) and savors the betrayals and violent deaths that choke Presidio's history. Through four generations the Uranga family confronts the devil with quiet heroism. Readers of Spanish will marvel at the unique mixture of Chicano Spanish, standard Spanish, and English - all used to reflect different realitites and levels of awareness.

"Brito . . . is a writer of impressive range and possibility." -Western States Book Awards Jury

"A book of consuming character and muted passion." - Los Angeles Times
