Synopses & Reviews
Fiction. Latino/Latina Studies. Set in the '60s, Genaro Gonz"lez's most recent novel plays on Kerouac as much as Cervantes in spinning the tale of De la O, a Chicano college student and would-be radical. With his gang of friends, De la O embarks on a series of wild road trips in search of political, spiritual, and chemical fulfillment. The Nation has written of the author, The creatures of his imagination combust into their own living, full-color reality. THE QUIXOTE CULT is Gonz"lez's third book with Arte Pblico; the first two, RAINBOW'S END and ONLY SONS, are also available from SPD.
The Quixote Cult confirms Genaro Gonzalez's reputation as a rambunctious, quirky writer whose characters, as The Nation wrote, "combust into their own living, full-colored reality".
