After living and working in revolutionary Latin America for nearly a quarter century, political writer, poet and photographer Margaret Randall came home to the United States. She is now fighting government moves to deny her citizenship and expel her from the U.S., where she was born and grew up and where her family still lives. Albuquerque is the story of her re-entry into North American life. Her multimedia response to the U.S.A. of the 1980s is at once intimate and analytic. The poems, prose, journal entries and photographs of this year-long account offer wide-ranging reflections on U.S. public life from rock videos to Reaganism. But as well, she provides a powerful evocation of the American landscape, of a woman's experience of herself in America, reminiscences of her adolescence in New Mexico, and a country-wide tour in which she touches and is touched by the lives of ordinary and extraordinary people from Yakima, Washington to New York City. Albuquerque is a unique and experimental work about politics, media, creativity and womanhood. MARGARET RANDALL is the author of forty books, including: Doris Tijerino: Inside the Nicaraguan Revolution (1978), Sandino's Daughters (1981), Christians in the Nicaraguan Revolution (1983), Risking a Somersault in the Air (1984), and Women Brave in the Face of Danger (1985).
