Tome is a small, outwardly sleepy hamlet in central New Mexico. In Ana Castillo's hands, however, it stands wondrously revealed as a place teeming with life and with all manner of collisions: the past with the present, the real with the supernatural, the comic with the horrific, the Native American with the Latino and the Anglo, and the women with the men. With her talkative, intimate voice and stylistic narrative freedom, Castillo relates the story of two crowded decades in the life of a Chicano family.

The book was great. I particularly enjoyed the details leading up to Fe's death. Unfortunately, the storyline was difficult to follow at times. I think it was that I read it in the Iberian dialect. Castillo originally wrote it in English, which should have been the language of selection here; sometimes so much is lost in translation. So if you are Bilingual, read it in English first. There will come a day when Chican@s will write novels in Spanish first.
