MARY OF ANGELS
is the first in a new series set at the California/Mexico border and featuring a varied cast of characters from different walks of life.
Smugglers, immigrants, cops, lawyers, journalists, politicians, predators... all caught up in the reality of an imaginary line across nowhere.
Two neighboring cities--one rich, one poor--two neighboring ghettos--one in Mexico, one in California.
Adapted from the television series, written right in Tijuana and San Diego by the author of "Tijuana Nocturnes" and "Imaginary Lines" , this first book in its series focuses on several lives: Ado sings ballads on buses until his son is stricken down, Riles' sorry appetites suddenly come together for his stories and his ill-gotten gains, Pepito crossed all the water between Honduras and California, and now it's all fallen apart, Pucho goes from fighting pits to the border beach to a home in the smuggler roost, La Flaca married out of the hills at twelve, and hit the streets before finding her true calling.
This is border life unvarnished and undramatized... but human drama of its essence.
