Killer Cronicas : Bilingual Memories (Wi Writing In Latinidad)
Susana Chavez-SilvermanISBN: 0299202208;
Book Description A woman living and communicating in multiple lands, Susana Chavez-Silverman conveys her cultural and linguistic displacement in a humorous, bittersweet, and even tangible way in this truly bilingual literary work. These meditative and lyrical pieces that combine poignant personal confession, detailed daily observation, and a memorializing drive that shifts across time and among geocultural spaces. The author’s inventive and flamboyant use of Spanglish, ahybrid English-Spanish idiom, and her adaptation of the confessional "cronica" make this memoir compelling and powerful. Killer Cronicas confirms that there is no Latina voice quite like that of Susana Chavez-Silverman. Killer Cronicas includes a chapter that was awarded first prize in El Andar magazine's Chicano Literary Excellence Contest in the category of personal memoir.
