"Tex-Mex Express" from ONCE MORE TO THE RIVER by Erasmo Guerra

"Childhood's End" from ONCE MORE TO THE RIVER by Erasmo Guerra

“Like the howl of an accordion—half sorrow and half joy, wondrous and exquisite—these stories squeezed my heart.”
—Sandra Cisneros, author of "The House on Mango Street"

*

In "Once More to the River," Erasmo Guerra writes a moving account of his boyhood on the Texas-Mexico border.

An award-winning novelist and journalist, Guerra explores present-day political and cultural realities, and recounts the shattering loss his family suffered when his teenage sister was murdered.

Told with lyrical prose and a reporter’s ear for the “Tex-Mex” language of the region, these stories capture the voices of South Texas. By turns humorous and haunting, powerful and tender, this collection is an intensely personal chronicle of tragedy and the triumph of survival.

*

ERASMO GUERRA was born and raised on the Texas-Mexico border. His nonfiction stories have appeared in The New York Times, Texas Monthly, The Texas Observer and aired on NPR. His work has been honored with a Lambda Literary Award and he has received writing grants from the Vermont Studio Center, The Fine Arts Work Center and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts.
