Flying Blue Tacos is a hilarious collection of insightful observations made by the main character, Hector Gonzalez, regarding his Mexican-American culture. Hector is a college student who is interested in entering an art contest at the university in order to try and win the thousand dollars first place prize. He is torn between entering a "typical" Mexican-American painting (skulls, farm workers, La Virgen de Guadalupe, pachucos, etc.), and a more universal, abstract painting. As he contemplates which of the two paintings to enter, he weighs in on many topics familiar to most Mexican-Americans, such as: Tired of Hearing "Sí Se Puede" all of the Time - Its been used in everything from immigration rallies to high school pep-rallies to my aunt yelling enthusiastically at her 2-year-old son ~ Sí se puede! ~ Sí se puede!... as he sat on the toilet trying to take a crap after being constipated for a couple of days. Trick-or-Treating in the Rich White Neighborhoods - Once in a while, someone would screw up and answer, "Sí, it's yo--Yenifer." But for the most part, they had no idea they were handing out candy to Hectors, Pablos, Marias, and Yenifers and not to Billys, Toms, Pattys and Jennifers. Defining the Term "Chicano" - ...if someone thinks he's a Chicano, then he's a Chicano. Besides, there's no Chicano Kennel Club sending out Certificates of Authenticity or pedigree papers showing someone is a purebred Chicano. Mexican's Favorite Type of Therapy - Denial Therapy is the preferred method of therapy for Mexicans. It's much better than Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or Psychoanalysis Therapy because it doesn't require seeing anyone with an advanced degree, there isn't a co-payment to make at the end of a session, the hours are flexible, and it's free. Denial Therapy may not fix the issue at hand, but it makes it bearable for at least one more day. Flying Blue Tacos will keep the readers laughing throughout the book. As the cover states: It's a Stand-Up Routine in Literary Form.

Juan Rulfo is one of the most important writers of twentieth-century Mexico, though he wrote only two books—the novel Pedro Páramo (1955) and the short story collection El llano en llamas (1953). First translated into English in 1967 as The Burning Plain, these starkly realistic stories create a psychologically acute portrait of poverty and dignity in the countryside at a time when Mexico was undergoing rapid industrialization following the upheavals of the Revolution. According to Ilan Stavans, the stories' "depth seems almost inexhaustible: with a few strokes, Rulfo creates a complex human landscape defined by desolation. These stories are lessons in morality. . . . They are also astonishing examples of artistic distillation." To introduce a new generation of readers to Rulfo's unsurpassable literary talents, this new translation repositions the collection as a classic of world literature. Working from the definitive Spanish edition of El llano en llamas established by the Fundación Juan Rulfo, Ilan Stavans and co-translator Harold Augenbram present fresh translations of the original fifteen stories, as well as two more stories that have not appeared in English before—"The Legacy of Matilde Arcángel" and "The Day of the Collapse." The translators have artfully preserved the author's "peasantisms," in appreciation of the distinctive voices of his characters. Such careful, elegiac rendering of the stories perfectly suits Rulfo's Mexico, in which people on the edge of despair nonetheless retain a sense of self, of integrity that will not be taken away.

Sometimes all you can do is fly away home . . . When Sylvie Serfer met Richard Woodruff in law school, she had wild curls, wide hips, and lots of opinions. Decades later, Sylvie has remade herself as the ideal politician’s wife—her hair dyed and straightened, her hippie-chick wardrobe replaced by tailored knit suits. At fifty-seven, she ruefully acknowledges that her job is staying twenty pounds thinner than she was in her twenties and tending to her husband, the senator. Lizzie, the Woodruffs’ younger daughter, is at twenty-four a recovering addict, whose mantra HALT (Hungry? Angry? Lonely? Tired?) helps her keep her life under control. Still, trouble always seems to find her. Her older sister, Diana, an emergency room physician, has everything Lizzie failed to achieve—a husband, a young son, the perfect home—and yet she’s trapped in a loveless marriage. With temptation waiting in one of the ER’s exam rooms, she finds herself craving more. After Richard’s extramarital affair makes headlines, the three women are drawn into the painful glare of the national spotlight. Once the press conference is over, each is forced to reconsider her life, who she is and who she is meant to be. Written with an irresistible blend of heartbreak and hilarity, Fly Away Home is an unforgettable story of a mother and two daughters who after a lifetime of distance finally learn to find refuge in one another.
