The Tortilla Curtain by T. C. Boyle
The Tortilla Curtain

Michael in Berkeley, September 1, 2011

T.C Boyle, an author I knew previously knew only by reputation, has gifted us not only a 'message' novel but an incredibly topical story as well. Alternating chapters between wealthy Los Angelenos with their white wine and gated communities along side stories of the mostly Mexican men and women driven north by poverty and the desire for a better life. Among intersecting worlds, there are no easy answers, mortal ambiguities abounding....a narrative that just plain moves...a book I am eager to get back to and finish. I will be reading more of Mr. Boyle's work is this one is any indication of his talents. Highly recommended.
