Las Nalgas de JLo/JLo's Booty by Barbara Renaud Gonzales
The Best & Most Notorious Calumnas & Other Writings by the First Chicana Columnist in Texas 1995-2005
Blurring the borders between literature, journalism, essay, history, memoir and short story, LAS NALGAS DE JLO is a non-fiction collection of columns, articles, reviews, and poems, most written by Renaud González between 1995-2005 when she was an independent columnist for the San Antonio Express. Divided into eight chapters with such provocative headings as "They Say I'm No Lady," "No Te Dejes/My Line in the Sand," "Pray For Us Women," "Forget the War, So We Can Remember It," and "Las Nalgas de JLo/JLo's Booty," each chapter begins with a previously unpublished poem. While most of the 61 columns and articles included in this book were published in the San Antonio Express, many were published in other national newspapers and magazines, and some were unpublished due to their content.
