Rolando Hinojosa

Clásicos Chicanos/ Chicano Classics #8

Premio Casa de las Américas 1976 Winner

El Condado de Belken - Klail City is a new Spanish-language edition of Klail City y sus alrededores, the novel for which Hinojosa won the Premio Casa de las Américas in 1976. The volume was published in the United States in a bilingual edition with the title Generaciones y semblanzas. Picking up and expanding on some of the characters and incidents from Estampas del Valle, El condado de Belken presents us with a collection of snapshot portraits, quick dialogues, and snippets of gossip told with Hinojosa's trademark wit.

"We marvel that the author has packed into his novel over one hundred fictional beings and has succeeded in weaving them in and out of his narrative in a way that enhances reader participation and leaves the impression of complete naturalness and spontaneity." - Charles M. Tatum, Chicano Literature
