I found Tortilla Curtain to be a cross between a political commentary, a satire, and a story about individuals. It definitely gives you a lot to think about and discuss. The characters are kind of hard to like in lots of ways, but from what the author is bringing attention to, you probably shouldn't like them very much. It's a good rendition of the tension between not liking the social injustices of various systems in our country and culture, but not wanting to give up the desirable things that are gained by exploiting certain groups of people. It shows how a person decides in increments that doing harm can be justified, with enough motivation to keep or get some wanted state of living.
We are using this book as a community activity at Foothill College. TC Boyle will be coming to our campus in Los Altos in California to speak in May of 2008. For more commentary, or to participate in discussion, check our blog. foothill.edu/weblog/onebook/
