PLACES LEFT UNFINISHED AT THE TIME OF CREATION
Author: John Phillip Santos
An immigration tale and a haunting family story, part treasury of the elders, part elegy, part Book of the Dead. Santos weaves together Mexican mythology and the history of Texas to create the story of how the soul of one Mexican family was passed down, and sometimes nearly lost, across borders and decades, into the present. New York, N.Y. 2000 Penguin Putnam Group 4th Pr., 284 Pgs., 5 x 7&3/4, PB.
