Fiction. Latina/Latino Studies. There's no story—no matter how bent—that the Storteller can't bring you home from. But in the barrio her hot pink flourescent Nike Airs are all that she has to barter for your soul...While the Storyteller leaps tall teflon cactus, stops powerful locomotives with a story thread and burns up the devil incarnate, the people of the barrio stories quietly—courageously—triumph over poverty and despair. Kleya Forté-Escamilla gives us worlds of real and magic possibility.
