      A Sourcebook

With a foreword by ANDREW DELBANCO

"In these times in which some sectors of the country choose to forget the contributions we Latinos make to this country that has taken us in and to the world, a new book does its part in helping us all remember...An amusing literary and cultural tour of this city that has, for such a long time now, defined the immagrant spirit of the United States, and without forgetting that America refers to two continents and not just to a single country...A book to be shared, to be kept and to build awareness." ANJANETTE DELGADO, Latino Book-Award and Emmy-Award winner, author of The Heartbreak Pill
