Las Mamis: Escritores Latinos Recuerdan A Sus Madres / Mothers (Vintage Espanol) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Una maravillosa antología nueva--las escritoras y los escritores latinos más admirados comparten recuerdos de sus madres.

Las mujeres amorosamente retratadas en las Las Mamis representan la diversidad de la vida y cultura latinas. Provienen de las familias ricas de las grandes ciudades de Latinoamérica, de familias campesinas emigrantes y también de la variedad de mundos intermedios. Además, comparten todas una extraordinaria fuerza interior, frecuentemente retada por la adversidad.

Presionadas por circunstancias y expectativas culturales conflictivas, lograron enfrentar los retos de la maternidad y dejar para sus hijos e hijas un legado perdurable. Y ahora, en estos vívidos, conmovedores y, en ocasiones, divertidísimos recuerdos, todos imbuidos de un claro sabor latino, Las Mamis celebra la universalidad del amor de familia y el vínculo especial entre madres e hijos.
