From the Publisher:
In her second novel, Castillo (the author of The Mixquiahuala Letters ) examines the obsessive struggle between a man and a woman, two natives of the metaphorical country of Sapogonia. In their battle for control over each other, the author subtly defines the struggle of all mestizos--the conflict of a mixed heritage of Conquistador and Conquered--which can never be resolved.
From the Inside Flap:
ogonia, edited and revised for its Anchor publication, Ana Castillo confronts the complex issues of race and identity facing those of mixed heritage through the struggles of Máximo Madrigal, an expatriate of Sapogonia, the metaphorical homeleand of all mestizos. Subtly political, it demonstrates how warring blood within a single body resists any peaceful resolution.
