Publisher Comments:

Latinos in Lotusland brings to life Latino denizens of Los Angeles and the city's surrounding communities. The stories describe complex, diverse characters: young and old, gay and straight, rich and poor. Meet a Cuban-American screenwriter trying to pitch the "real" story behind the Bay of Pigs fiasco, a Mexican woman who believes she's seen a miracle, youths trying to avoid gang life while others embrace it, and many others.

Review:

"Olivas,...opens readers' eyes in this collection to a new world of Chicano literature....Latinos in Lotusland creates new possibilities to consider and explore for the community of readers and writers, and beyond." El Paso Times

Synopsis:

Fiction. Latino/Latina Studies. Edited by Daniel A. Olivas. LATINOS IN LOTUSLAND brings to life Latino denizens of the Los Angeles area resulting in a complex and diverse group of characters: young and old, gay and straight, rich and poor, the newly arrived and the well established. We meet aggressive journalists, cement pourers, disaffected lovers, drunken folklorico dancers, successful curanderos, teenage slackers, aging artists, wrestling saints, aimless druggies, people made of paper, college students, and even a private detective in search of a presumed-dead gonzo writer. Setting for these stories range from East L.A. to Malibu, Hollywood to the San Fernando Valley, Venice Beach to El Sereno. This anthology brings together established and newer writers who provide beautiful, powerful, and eloquent tales.
