About this title:

Synopsis: A collection of short fiction by the author of The Great Whirl of Exile journeys to small-town San Miguel, New Mexico, following World War II veteran Mosco Zamora and Vietnam veteran Johnny Barros through a series of encounters with the colorful characters of the town's inhabitants. A first collection. (Story Collections)

From Library Journal: New Mexico native Quintana, who now teaches at Mesa College in San Diego, has published several poetry collections, including Sangre, an American Book Award winner. Here he offers a collection of interrelated short stories that takes place in the fictional small town of San Miguel, NM, during the 1950s and 1970s. Centered on Mosco Zamora, an alcoholic veteran of World War II, the first set of stories is lighthearted. But the second set, which features Vietnam vet Johnny Barros, brings the war back home to San Miguel. By the time Barros returns to New Mexico, the stories of Mosco's burning rosary and La La La Chevalier's tortilla, scorched with the image of her dead love, are distant dreams of a lost world. Like Rudolfo Anaya, Quintera invests his characters with unforgettable stories and real poignancy as they navigate the Anglo and Chicano worlds. But his poetic voice, steeped in oral tradition, is distinct. Highly recommended for public and academic library collections.
