The stories of flesh to bone “stand on their own as testaments to a profound loneliness of historic persecution, abandonment, and intimate loss.

Rooted in a Chicana/Latina/indigenous geographic and cultural sensibility, the stories of flesh to bone take on the force of myth, old and new, giving voice to those who experience the disruption and violence of the borderlands.
