"This is a most absorbing book, for the authors interviewed here perform as live and also quite lively voices, inviting the reader to sample their art.... The book succeeds in defining the achievement of a significant literary generation." —Herbert S. Lindenberger, Avalon Foundation Professor of Humanities in Comparative Literature and English, Emeritus, Stanford University "Aldama has effectively rewritten the standard for conducting interviews. While all his authors are deeply interesting, what's wonderful is how each interview develops in its own unique way. It's quite clear that Aldama is asking the questions, but he's also responding to the answers. As a result, all the interviews make for great reading." —Jos F. Aranda Jr., Associate Professor of English, Rice University Since the 1980s, a prolific "second wave" of Chicano/a writers and artists has tremendously expanded the range of genres and subject matter in Chicano/a literature and art. Building on the pioneering work of their predecessors, whose artistic creations were often tied to political activism and the civil rights struggle, today's Chicano/a writers and artists feel free to focus as much on the aesthetic quality of their work as on its social content. They use novels, short stories, poetry, drama, documentary films, and comic books to shape the raw materials of life into art objects that cause us to participate empathetically in an increasingly complex Chicano/a identity and experience. This book presents far-ranging interviews with twenty-one "second wave" Chicano/a poets, fiction writers, dramatists, documentary filmmakers, and playwrights. Some are mainstream, widely recognized creators, while others work from the margins because of their sexual orientations or their controversial positions. Frederick Luis Aldama draws out the artists and authors on both the aesthetic and the sociopolitical concerns that animate their work. Their conversations delve into such areas as how the artists' or writers' life experiences have molded their work, why they choose to work in certain genres and how they have transformed them, what it means to be Chicano/a in today's pluralistic society, and how Chicano/a identity influences and is influenced by contact with ethnic and racial identities from around the world.

This collection of original essays provides an intellectual, social, and historical background for the postmodern movement in the literary, visual, and performing arts in America today. Both creative expression and critical thought are examined in literature, painting and sculpture, dance, music, photography, architecture, theatre, and film. The author of each essay describes and analyzes the ways in which individuals become conscious of, represent, and ultimately assimilate changes in their respective art forms. Included in each essay is a synthesis of critical issues, as well as a discussion of representative figures and their works. Also, a broad bibliographic component supplements each essay, including discussions of resource materials, checklists, and a comprehensive annotated bibliography. In his introduction, editor Stanley Trachtenberg provides an overview of postmodernism. In addition, the volume contains an appendix of related European and Latin American expressions and a chronology of historical and cultural events and individual achievements.
