Cool El Chuco related stuff I've been reading online

Erasmo Guerra's interview of El Paso’s most famous literati, John Rechy. He also reviews Rechy’s new novel About My Life and the Kept Woman. I loved his book Sexual Outlaw and still have to read City of Night. What kind of El Pasoan hasn’t read that one? Shame on me, shame, shame.

In other El Paso news, Daniel Olivas reviewed The Flowers by another El Pasoan Dagoberto Gilb in the El Paso Times this week. Called Gilb “one of our finest contemporary writers.”

Then there’s former El Pasoan Sheryl Luna’s great blog this week about “being invisible.” It’s got something everyone can relate to. I’m enjoying the discussion her post has started about community.
