    1. Amalia Gomez is a Hispanic single mother trying to come to terms with her past and present She is a complex character who at times you feel sorry for Other times, you she is frustratingly single tracked She tries to come to terms with her past while ignoring her present and at the expense of her kids Rechy creates a tapestry His use of diction to portray a disenfranchised single mother in Los Angeles is chilling and spot on I am not Amalia Gomez, but I have encountered a lot of Amalias in real l [...]

    2. Actual rating 2.5Amalia was a very irritating character to me I felt like she always made herself the victim when clearly a lot of the things are her fault Yes, some things were out of her control, such as being abused by her dad, emotionally abused by her mother, and physically emotionally abused by Salvador And a few partners well all except Raynaldo hurt her But besides all that Everything else she had a way of avoiding the outcomes She could have taken things in controlled but then not Inste [...]

    5. A criminally underrated, underrecognized novel I felt as if I were Amalia Gomez Rechy enables us to identify with her She represents those who lose, or are lost, in the postmodern, late capitalist environment It s a devastating novel.
