Poetry. Ride their intwined rhythms of doo-wop salsa through decades of celebration and confrontation in Esperanza Malave Cintron's lyric portrait of Midwest mestizos, a scared, sacred, soaring interface between her Puerto Rican self and her African-American self. "CHOCOLATE CITY LATINA is an important collection ... that speaks to biculturality and biraciality in poignant, powerful and haunting ways"--Cecilia Rodriguez Milanes.
