Cuentos: Stories by Latinas, Alma Gómez, Cherríe Moraga and Mariana Romo-Carmona, Editors.
The first collection of short fiction to bring together writing by Latinas from both the U.S. and Latin America. The thirty stories break "la cultura de silencio" by depicting the myriad unrecognized ways Latinas have resisted colonization both in the flesh and in the spirit. Cuentos include selections in Spanish and English with a bilingual introduction by the editors.

"How I have longed to begin to know these Latinas: That is what I thought as I sat reading Cuentos in anticipation and joy. What a new bur comfortingly familiar world opens up through this book: How connected I feel. How can anyone have ever said we are not sisters? And saviors of our culture? Yes." - Alice Walker
"Cuentos: Stories by Latinas describe the varied experiences of Hispanic women. Anger, love, compassion, humor and pathos fill the pages of this collection. Most importantly, these women speak of their ability to overcome daily struggles of survival, and prevail." - Nicholassa Mohr
