    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 [...]


    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 [...]


    3. I very highly recommend this book. This is my first experience with Rechy's writing but it will certainly not be my last. What a talented writer! The book is very short but extremely powerful. And he describes Los Angeles so perfectly -- not the LA that most people know, but the neighborhoods. If you've ever been in East LA or the "other" side of Hollywood, you will recognize it immediately. I did some teaching work in East LA for a while at a school of predominantly Latino children, and his des [...]


    4. Amalia is a devout Roman Catholic but doesn't seem to like anyone, including herself, very much at all. She thinks she is superior for some reason because she is a Mexican-American, as opposed to a Mexican or Central American immigrant, sort of the type who would feel very threatened and invaded when and if a non-Hispanic were to speak to her in Spanish. Yet, she is to be pitied, indeed. She is stuck in the cycle of poverty, with cruddy men, a son who committed suicide in a jail, another who is [...]


    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.
