Zapata Rose in 1992 is a new and greatly expanded edition of Keller's Tales of El Huitlacoche (1984), a distinguished collection of Chicano short stories. This volume contains the original four stories that have become favorites among many readers along with three new tales. All display "an infectious humor and vitality where English and Spanish are richly, exuberantly intermingled" (Anne Tyler). One of the stories was published in the Best of the Small Presses collection (Avon Books, 1977), and the book won the "Writers Choice" award sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts in 1985.

Keller is a Regents' Professor at Arizona State Univ.From Library Journal:
To four of the stories in this collection, originally published as Tales of El Huitlacoche (Maize Pr., 1984), Keller adds three new ones. Two of them--"Hidalgo, Adventure Capitalist," a winsome saga of a latter-day Don Quijote, and the titular tale, whose interlocutors are Emiliano Zapata, Cervantes, and Saint Teresa--are novel-length. Keller relishes telling stories of the Chicano experience, imbuing them with personal expression, believable characters, and especially well-tempered satire. Some readers may be disconcerted by the constant shifting in mid-sentence from English to an often colloquial and untranslatable Spanish. Still, Keller, a Hispanic literature scholar, provides a delightful diversion that will appeal to Chicanos and Anglos alike.
