Outside the Bones
LYN DI IORIO
This spellbinding debut novel combines Afro-Caribbean witchcraft with a dark, unsolved mystery
ina is a big girl with a big mouth. She’s the neighborhood bruja—or “spirit worker” as she likes to call herself—casting spells for her neighbors in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. She can’t believe it when she puts an accidental fufú—or spell—on Chico, the irresistible trumpet-player who lives upstairs.
Chico recovers just as two women from his past turn up: his former beauty-queen lover and an attractive young woman claiming to be his long-dead daughter. Fina is not pleased. So she visits her mentor, Tata Victor Tumba Fuego, Master of Fire. He specializes in Palo Monte, the Afro-Caribbean magical art of controlling and manipulating spirits housed in cauldrons. The Ancient One, the oldest spirit working for Victor, wants a blood sacrifice from Fina, something she has managed to avoid. “We ain’t on the island no more, we don’t sacrifice in the mountains of Africa or Cuba; we do it in our apartments.” But she needs help, so she’ll do what it takes. All too soon she finds herself involved with a spirit whose quest for revenge can’t be stopped. Weaving Afro-Caribbean witchcraft rituals with the sixteen-year-old mystery of a woman’s disappearance, Outside the Bones is an erotically charged ghost story set in both present-day New York and Puerto Rico. Following in the tradition of Anne Rice, Lyn Di Iorio’s brilliant debut novel takes a mesmerizing look at issues of race, class, power and greed. LYN DI IORIO grew up in Puerto Rico and came to the Mainland to attend Harvard University. She received her master’s degree from Stanford University’s Creative Writing Program and her doctorate in English literature from the University of California, Berkeley. She teaches literature and creative writing at The City College of New York and The Graduate Center of the City University of New York. She is the author of scholarly books on Latino literature; this is her first novel, an excerpt of which won an honorable mention in the 2009 New Millennium Writings Awards Competition.

Partners in Crime
A Rafe Buenrostro Mystery
The first novel in the Rafe Buenrostro Mystery series features murder and mayhem along the Texas-Mexico border
t’s a cool Monday morning in October 1972, and the Belken County Homicide Squad is dealing with a dead body found in an abandoned car in a cotton field. Lieutenant Detective Rafe Buenrostro and the four other men in the squad are accustomed to corpses, even though they live and work in a mostly rural area of South Texas along the Mexican border. The bloody scene at the Kum Bak Inn is a different story, though: three men—including one of their own—are brutally slaughtered. Two witnesses spared this horrific death are able to provide first-hand descriptions of the killers: three Mexican nationals, armed with machine guns, driving a cream-colored, four-door Oldsmobile. These clues send Rafe and his colleagues down a twisting path strewn with leads. But it’s a meeting with their Mexican counterpart, Captain Lisandro Gómez Solís of the Tamaulipas State Police, which sets them on the trail that will lead to the killers. Foreshadowing the violence plaguing Mexico and the border area, Rolando Hinojosa’s first mystery novel featuring characters from his acclaimed Klail City Death Trip series was originally published in 1985 and has been out of print for years. Partners in Crime is a procedural whodunit that will satisfy the most hardened mystery book aficionado. Praise for Partners in Crime: “Hinojosa has learned well from the masters of detection, as he masterfully arranges numerous details in a convincing manner.” —World Literature Today “A compelling and incisive book.” —Dallas Morning News
ROLANDO HINOJOSA, the Ellen Clayton Garwood Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Texas at Austin, is the recipient of numerous literary awards, including the most prestigious prize in Latin American fiction, Casa de las Américas, for the best Spanish American novel in 1976.

A Voice of My Own
ROLANDO HINOJOSA INTRODUCTION BY HÉCTOR CALDERÓN
This collection of prose writings examines life straddling two cultures, languages on the Texas-Mexico border
Essays and Stories
aised on the northern bank of the Río Grande in South Texas, acclaimed author Rolando Hinojosa attended Mexican and American schools as a child and has lived in both cultures throughout his life. His schooling contributed to an awareness of differences and similarities in those around him, and led to his search for “a personal voice, which was to become my public voice.” Author of the acclaimed Klail City Death Trip series, which examines relations between Mexican Americans and Anglo Americans in the fictional Rio Grande Valley town of Klail City, Texas, Hinojosa muses on various aspects of writing in these 14 essays. Topics include the decision to write in English or Spanish, the problem of writer’s block and the development of story ideas and characters. Other essays cover personal issues, such as memories of his father and his love of reading and its impact on his life, and scholarly subjects such as the development of Chicano and ethnic literature. Four of Hinojosa’s short stories are included, and as is typical of Hinojosa’s life and work, some pieces are in English and others are in Spanish. But whether writing fiction or non-fiction, it is clear that his early life on the border was a driving force in his development as a man and a writer. With an introduction by UCLA scholar Héctor Calderón, this collection written between 1982 and 2009 is required reading for anyone interested in Hinojosa’s work and issues of assimilation, border life and discrimination. Praise for the Klail City Death Trip series: "Although his sharp eye and accurate ear capture a place, its people and a time in a masterly way, his work goes far beyond regionalism. He is a writer for all readers." —The New York Times Book Review “Rolando Hinojosa is one of Texas’ most remarkable writers. [This series] is one of Faulknerian dimensions.” —Dallas Times Herald ROLANDO HINOJOSA, the Ellen Clayton Garwood Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Texas at Austin, is the recipient of numerous literary awards, including the most prestigious prize in Latin American fiction, Casa de las Américas, for the best Spanish American novel in 1976.

Crossing Borders Personal Essays
Thought-provoking essays about transcending cultural borders
n good days I feel I am a bridge. On bad days I just feel alone,” Sergio Troncoso writes in this riveting collection of sixteen personal essays in which he seeks to connect the humanity of his Mexican family to people he meets on the East Coast, including his wife’s Jewish kin. Raised in a home steps from the Mexican border in El Paso, Texas, Troncoso crossed what seemed an even more imposing border when he left home to attend Harvard College. Initially, “outsider status” was thrust upon him; later, he adopted it willingly, writing about the Southwest and Chicanos in an effort to communicate where he came from to those unfamiliar with his childhood world. He wrote to maintain his ties to his family and to fight against the elitism he experienced at an Ivy League school. Troncoso writes to preserve his past, but also puts pen to paper for the future. In his threepart essay entitled “Letter to My Young Sons,” he documents the terror of his wife’s breast cancer diagnosis and the ups and downs of her treatment. Other essays convey the joys and frustrations of fatherhood and the impact of his wife’s heritage and religion on his Mexican-American identity. Crossing Borders: Personal Essays reveals a writer, father and husband who has crossed linguistic, cultural and intellectual borders to provoke debate about contemporary Mexican-American identity. Challenging assumptions about literature, the role of writers in America, fatherhood and family, these essays bridge the chasm between the poverty of the border region and the highest echelons of success in America. Praise for the work of Sergio Troncoso: “These stories are richly satisfying.” —Publishers Weekly on The Last Tortilla and Other Stories "Impressively lucid first thriller." —The Chicago Tribune on The Nature of Truth SERGIO TRONCOSO is the author of The Nature of Truth (2003) and The Last Tortilla and Other Stories (1999), which won the Premio Aztlan and the Southwest Book Award. He lives and works in New York City.

Los recuerdos de Ana Calderón
GRACIELA LIMÓN SPANISH TRANSLATION BY NURIA BRUFAU ALVIRA
Acclaimed novel now available in Spanish-language edition
hey said that no boy could live where I had lived. I knew my father resented me for what I had done to my mother’s insides.” After her birth, Ana Calderón’s mother isn’t able to carry a male child to full term, losing three baby boys. And when her mother dies, Ana becomes fully responsible for her seven younger siblings, ending her days of carefree romping on the beaches of southern Mexico. But even worse, she will carry forever her father’s resentment. Ana is young when her father moves his large, motherless brood to the United States. She just knows that her life will change. “I didn’t know where we were going, but I felt that each step away from the palapa would lead me to the fulfillment of what I knew was my destiny.” Ana does encounter greater opportunity, but she discovers that even in the U.S., society, family and religion scheme to hold her back. To succeed, Ana must remake herself into a rootless and obsessed individual. But even after accomplishing this, fate still conspires against her. Now available for the first time in Spanish, this fictional memoir of a talented woman born in tradition-bound rural Mexico takes a compelling look at immigration, women’s rights and the perennial search for love and the meaning of life.

Praise for The Memories of Ana Calderón: “Limón does an excellent job of describing the hardships of migrant life and the driving emotions of the family patriarchy.” —Publishers Weekly “[This novel] should awaken the conscience and compassion that drive and haunt every reader.” —Booklist GRACIELA LIMÓN is the award-winning author of seven novels, including In Search of Bernabé (1993), which received an American Book Award and was named a “Notable Book of the Year” by The New York Times Book Review.

EDITED BY RAFAEL PÉREZ-ESCAMILLA & HUGO MELGAR-QUIÑONEZ
This timely volume explores current, worrisome trends in Latino children’s health
Latino Children’s Health
ccording to the United Nations, the United States spends more per capita on health care than any other nation in the world, yet ranks 42nd in life expectancy. Obesity—and and its impact on chronic conditions such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes and even asthma—contributes to this unfortunate situation. Experts agree that if the current obesity trends are not overturned, today’s children will be the first to have a life expectancy shorter than their parents. In their introduction, editors Rafael Pérez-Escamilla and Hugo MelgarQuiñonez note that the future of the country’s well-being is closely tied to that of its Latino children. Overall, Latinos in the U.S. confront higher levels of poverty and have lower levels of education and English-language proficiency. Because of financial instability, they have less access to healthy foods and health care services. In 2009, almost 35% of Latino children lived in households that experienced food insecurity, and obesity and diabetes are rampant in the community. Written by the country’s leading experts in Latino children’s health, the ten articles included in this landmark volume examine the issues that affect the well-being of the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population. In each chapter, the challenges and problems are outlined, and policy and programmatic changes are suggested. RAFAEL PÉREZ-ESCAMILLA, a professor of epidemiology and public health, is director of the Office of Community Health at the Yale School of Public Health. He is also the director of the Connecticut NIH Export Center of Excellence for Eliminating Health Disparities among Latinos (CEHDL). He is currently chair-elect of the American Society for Nutrition’s International Nutrition Council. HUGO MELGAR-QUIÑONEZ is an associate professor in the Department of Human Nutrition at Ohio State University and a state specialist at OSU Extension. He received his doctorate and medical degree from the University Friedrich Schiller in Germany.
