Description
Exquisite prose and wondrous storytelling have helped make Rudolfo Anaya the father of Chicano literature in English. Indeed, Anaya's tales fairly shimmer with the haunting beauty and richness of his culture. The winner of the Pen Center West Award for Fiction for his unforgettable novel Alburquerque, Anaya is perhaps best loved for his classic bestseller, Bless Me, Ultima... Antonio Marez is six years old when Ultima comes to stay with his family in New Mexico. She is a curandera, one who cures with herbs and magic. Under her wise wing, Tony will probe the family ties that bind and rend him, and he will discover himself in the magical secrets of the pagan past-a mythic legacy as palpable as the Catholicism of Latin America. And at each life turn there is Ultima, who delivered Tony into the world...and will nurture the birth of his soul.

      • content: If you haven't encountered Rudolfo Anaya's classic 1972 novel in another form, there could hardly be a better introduction than this fluid performance by Robert Ramirez. Tony Marez is a bright Mexican-American boy growing up in the late 1940s in a family full of contradictions. His father's people are wanderers; his mother's are farmers. His mother hopes Tony will be a priest, yet she takes into the household the aged curandera, Ultima, whose healing powers are decidedly pre-Christian. There are curses placed and broken; there are deaths natural and unnatural to understand; there are hopes fulfilled and dreams broken. Kudos to all involved in this moving tale of growth, belief, and the nature and sources of goodness. B.G.
