The Tortilla CurtainBook - 1995
From Library Staff
The story of undocumented Californians, told through the eyes of two very different couples, one well-off Anglos, the other illegal Mexicans living in a canyon. The novel chronicles their relationship against the background of growing hostility between immigrants and natives.
Delaney and Kyra Mossbacher, a stay-at-home dad and his real-estate whiz wife, clash with Cándido and América Rincón, illegal immigrants who have crossed into California from Mexico and are awaiting the birth of their baby.
