Summary
"Frederick Luis Aldama and graphic artists from Mapache Studios give shape to ugly truths in the most honest way, creating new perceptions, thoughts, and feelings about life in the borderlands of the Americas. Each bilingual prose-art fictional snapshot in this collection offers an unsentimentally complex glimpse into the lives of those pushed into shadowed corners of society today"--Provided by publisher
