The Cha Cha Files: A Chapina Poética by Maya Chinchilla is a timely debut that makes visible the Central American-Guatemalan diaspora and disentangles the myths from the mayhem of civil wars, urban wars, and the wars raging in young hearts. Part memory, part imaginary, The Cha Cha Files honors Central American feministas, Long Beach roqueras, families divided by war, lovers separated by borders, and celebrates the pleasure and heartbreak of femmes, machas, y mariconadas. These poems, stories, and snapshots traverse California coastlines and southern borderlines, cut across tense multi-culti high-school hallways, sing Solidarity Movement songs, mosh through tribal slam pits, and find home in the vibrant Bay Area where radical activists and lovers alike come of age. Chinchilla's hopeful and uniquely Chapina voice emerges as a significant contribution to U.S. Latina/o literary works.

The Cambridge History of Latina/o American Literature emphasizes the importance of understanding Latina/o literature not simply as a US ethnic phenomenon but more broadly as an important element of a trans-American literary imagination. Engaging with the dynamics of migration, linguistic and cultural translation, and the uneven distribution of resources across the Americas that characterize Latina/o literature, the essays in this History provide a critical overview of key texts, authors, themes, and contexts as discussed by leading scholars in the field. This book demonstrates the relevance of Latina/o literature for a world defined by the migration of people, commodities, and cultural expressions.

The Cambridge Companion to Latina/o American Literature provides a thorough yet accessible overview of a literary phenomenon that has been rapidly globalizing over the past two decades. It takes an innovative approach that underscores the importance of understanding Latina/o literature not merely as an ethnic phenomenon in the United States, but more broadly as a crucial element of a trans-American literary imagination. Leading scholars in the field present critical analyses of key texts, authors, themes, and contexts, from the early nineteenth century to the present. They engage with the dynamics of migration, linguistic and cultural translation, and the uneven distribution of resources across the Americas that characterize Latina/o literature. This Companion will be an invaluable resource, introducing undergraduate and graduate students to the complexities of the field.

Central Americans are the third largest and fastest growing Latino population in the United States. And yet, despite their demographic presence, there has been little scholarship focused on this group. Constituting Central American-Americans is an exploration of the historical and disciplinary conditions that have structured U.S. Central American identity and of the ways in which this identity challenges how we frame current discussions of Latina/o, American ethnic, and diasporic identities. By focusing on the formation of Central American identity in the U.S., Maritza E. Cárdenas challenges us to think about Central America and its diaspora in relation to other U.S. ethno-racial identities.

Der große EXILROMAN des salvadorianischen Schriftstellers Castellanos Moya ist der bedeutendste und engagierteste Schriftsteller El Salvadors. Zweimal aus dem Heimatland vertrieben, ist ›Der Traum von Rückkehr‹ ein persönlicher. Mit trockenem Humor und einer gehörigen Portion Selbstironie enthüllt sein Protagonist Erasmo Aragón eine ebenso spannende wie verworrene Geschichte. Der Bürgerkrieg hat wüste Spuren in ihm hinterlassen, die der betagte Arzt Don Chente mit einer Hypnosebehandlung offenlegen will. Doch Aragón beginnt, dem Arzt und bald auch der eigenen Erinnerung zu misstrauen. Das politische wird zum existentiellen Exil.

Je nachdrücklicher die 17-jährige Louisa ihre geistige Gesundheit beteuert, desto weniger glaubt man ihr – und desto schlimmer wird ihre Situation. Denn Louisa ist in einer Irrenanstalt gelandet. Warum, kann sie nur ahnen. Weil sie anders ist? Weil sie als Mädchen einen Beruf erlernen will – was im viktorianischen England einem Sakrileg gleichkommt. Und wer steckt hinter ihrer Einweisung? Diese Ungewissheit und die demütigenden Schikanen zermürben Louisa. Wäre da nicht die junge Pflegerin Eliza, würde Louisa sogar an Selbstmord denken.
