Writing the Southwest. Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, 1995. With a foreword by Rudolfo Anaya (also interviewed in the collection), acclaimed author of Bless Me Ultima, one of the early traditional canonic pillars of Chicano literature, and a preface by Paula Gunn Allen, the book is a definite jewel in literary history, important because it inscribes the study of authors less known to American mainstream literary audiences, and renowned Southwest. authors, including them as established.

Part bio, part political, part inspiration, it's one of those books I've read way more than once.

Rudolfo Anaya, who also wrote the foreword, describes his connection to the Southwest. David Dunaway and Sara Spurgeon offer a hybrid of biography, interview, and excerpts about fourteen Southwestern poets, playwrights, essayists, and novelists in "Writing the Southwest. Taken a step further, the power of literature is to transport the reader into the very core of the mythic and poetic world of the story. A very worthwhile, attractive package. She too draws on the traditions of storytelling and folk dramas in the Hispanic Southwest; like Rudolfo Anaya, she revels in a distinctly American magical realism. Denise Chavez offers us the voice of a new generation of Hispanic Women: educated, articulate, bursting with energy and drive.

Fifty-two essays exploring identity, literature, immigration, and politics by one of the godfathers of Chicano literature In his essay The New World Man, Rudolfo Anaya writes, I stand poised at the center of power, the knowing of myself, the heart and soul of the New World man alive in me.

A region where dances for rain and prayers to the santos mix with New Age and high-tech jargon has produced some of the most exciting writing in America today. The common thread that links such writers as Edward Abbey, Tony Hillerman, Joy Harjo, Barbara Kingsolver, and Terry McMillan is an understanding of the interplay between humans and the earth. This compelling collection offers outstanding selections of contemporary Southwestern literature along with a biographical profile, a bibliography, and an original interview with each of the fourteen authors included. Here are the words of rangy Frank Waters, who at ninety-three is still the "dean of Western writers"; the rhythms of Navajo songs, in the poetry of Native American Luci Tapahonso; the political, highly charged prose of John Nichols, in his classic The Milagro Beanfield War; and the magical realism of Rudolfo Anaya, one of the founders of Chicano literature. Diverse in style and focus, the authors of the Southwest are united by a sense of place and an awareness of the heritage and textures of this multicultural, multilingual land.
