NY Times Book Review Editor Pulls a Don Imus

Christine Granados writes una columna bien chingóna about the NY Times Book Review editor's visit to El Paso.

When the guero is finished with his talk, I buy his book so I can ask him what role he thinks Chicano literature is going to play in American letters. And because I asked straight up like that, he couldn't bring up Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who we both know ain't Mexican-American. The pobre had to answer something, and you know what he told me? He just doesn't see it having a big role in literature, such as other media and the Internet.

Read it all here at the EP Times. And I am impressed the El Paso daily has columnists like Granados...y escribiendo con code-switching y todo. Rock on. Y gracias a Emmy por haberlo posteado en su blog.
