From the white boy who transforms himself into a full-fledged Chicano, to the self-assured woman who effortlessly terrorizes her Anglo boss, to the junior-high friend who berated her "sloppy Spanish" and accused her of being a "Chicana Falsa," the people and places that Michele Serros brings to vivid life in this collection of poems and stories introduce a unique new viewpoint to the American literary landscape.
Chicana Falsa: and Other Stories of Death, Identity and Oxnard (Riverhead), has quickly become required reading for high school curriculum as well as for Chicana/o Studies and English courses in colleges and universities throughout the Southwest.
