Publisher Comments:

This volume gathers for the first time Mena's stones written between 1913 and 1931 and published originally in such magazines as Century, American and Cosmopolitan. In her short fiction Mena portrays life in Mexico both before and during the Revolution of 1910 in stories that depict tradition and upheaval, class hierarchy and social customs under Porfido Diaz, the changing roles of women, the influences of Spain and the United States, and the effects of capitalism and modernization. These intriguing narratives open a window on Mexico's past, and their underlying themes remain relevant to readers today.
