This is an excellent anthology of short stories written by Latino authors from many different countries. Not only are the short stories themselves entertaining, but they give insight into what it is like for each particular Latino culture to assimilate in America. What it is like to be a Cuban is not the same for a Mexican in America, and a Puerto Rican and so on. Even though some of the Latino cultures appear similar, there are major differences that are not obvious to mainstream America. In this book of short stories, you will find consistent topics that can be shared by everyone Latino or not. Anyone who is interested in the differences between Latino cultures in America should read this book because they are not all the same. Besides, the stories are great.

I enjoyed the stories written by the writers. These stories will move you through several types of emotions, while others will cause you to think. Not only do the writers have various background as far as which country/environment they have come from but I was intrigued by the wealth of the material given that some of the writers share their lives with writing as well as other occupations. It is encouraging to know that you do not have to devote your entire life to writing in order to be a writer of great stories.
