Ilan Stavans's collection of essays on kitsch and high art in
the Americas makes a return with thirteen new colorful
conversations that deliver Stavans's trademark wit and provocative
analysis. "A Dream Act Deferred" discusses an issue that is at once
and always topical in the dialogue of Hispanic popular culture:
immigration. This essay generated a vociferous response when first
published in The Chronicle of Higher Education as the issue of
immigration was contested in states like Arizona, and is included
here as a new addition that adds a rich layer to Stavans's vibrant
discourse. Fitting in this reconfiguration of his analytical
conversations on Hispanic popular culture is Stavans's "Arrival:
Notes from an Interloper," which recounts his origins as a social
critic and provides the reader with interactive insight into the
mind behind the matter.
Once again delightfully humorous and perceptive, Stavans
delivers an expanded collection that has the power to go even
further beyond common assumptions and helps us understand Mexican
popular culture and its counterparts in the United States.
