Summary

Weaving together poetry and prose, Spanish and English, family history and political theory, Loving in the War Years has been a classic in the feminist and Chicano canon since its 1983 release. This second edition includes four new essays written in a voice nearly a generation older than the first edition. Moraga's posture is now closer to that of a zen warrior than a street-fighter. The war years continue, and loving still resides in the uncensored word. The silenced sentence-lo que nunca paso por sus labios-once spoken, inspires insurrection. Book jacket.
