Praise for Memorias From The Beltway
Twenty-five years after the publication the East of the Freeway by raúlrsalinas, Memorias from the Beltway is a much needed repuesta to the recollections, which raúl explores in another time of vast global, sociopolitical transformation and popular, grassroots uprisings. The intimate manner in which both Mauricio and raúl communicate the soulfulness of our rebellion through sparse and intentional words is certainly one point of commonality. Their love of la vida cotidiana is another moment of intersection. Undoubtedly, it is in these small acts of calling our existence that we persevere. Memorias from the Beltway implores us to dwell in these remembrances, mourn our losses, and honor the words we carve out as "lifelines." —Lilia Rosas, Ph.D. Executive Director, Red Salmon Arts Osten, Tejaztlán, Otoño 2020
