Highly politicized and intensely personal, Moraga's work dares to imagine the mythic nation Queer Atzlán: a brave vision for gender, sexuality, race, art, nationalism, and the politics of liberation. Moraga crosses literary genres to ruminate on the paradox of being at once inside and outside the myriad struggles and communities—interlocking and often at odds—that spur her art and activism. Speaking from her experience as a queer Chicana activist/artist, Moraga is committed to building a broad politic of solidarity and justice for all dispossessed people. With fierce honesty and incisive political analysis, Moraga offers more than an inspiring portrait of the struggle of an activist artist—she helps us see the world as it is and dream it up anew.

    stunning collection of prose and poetry straddling ancient and current worlds, anglo and Chicanx cultures, personal and political aspects, sexual and platonic relations; Moraga is really good at exploring liminal spaces...i love her conception of Queer Aztlan, it brings me a lot of hope...there are so many connections that i felt between the Chicanx movement and the Palestinian liberation movement and by extension to land-people-body freedom globally. a valuable piece of work and i am excited to stunning collection of prose and poetry straddling ancient and current worlds, anglo and Chicanx cultures, personal and political aspects, sexual and platonic relations; Moraga is really good at exploring liminal spaces...i love her conception of Queer Aztlan, it brings me a lot of hope...there are so many connections that i felt between the Chicanx movement and the Palestinian liberation movement and by extension to land-people-body freedom globally. a valuable piece of work and i am excited to delve deeper into Moraga's work and the ones referenced herein. also, i love her seamless movement between english and spanish.

    I read this book while writing my own poetry in the Spring of 2017 and found it incredibly generative for my own work. Moraga's genius weaving of poetry and prose that highlights her own struggles while connecting with past generations is brilliant.

    A wonderful exploration of Chicanx and Queer identity. Poetry and prose transverse the border of the personal and political.
