Carlos Fuentes en Memoria

In these times where the wound of the U.S.-Mexico Border experience is in bas-relief, in addition to Fuentes’ lifetime devotion to literature, I am indebted for comments he made in recognition of the Latino/Chicano writers in the North. He said, and indeed, I heard him say in lectures, of Mexico’s heritage being from the Yucatán up to Albuquerque with Ana Castillo (So Far From God). For including our work to keep the memory of our culture alive and honored, I am personally indebted to el Sr. Fuentes. Que en paz descanse.
