BeschreibungHelena Maria Viramontes' highly acclaimed first novel is a moving and powerful vision of the lives of the men, women, and children who endure a second-class existence and labor under dangerous conditions in America's fields.
Pressestimmen"Stunning... blends lyricism, harsh realism and concern for social justice."- Newsweek "The best literary fiction makes its villains out of situations rather than people, and finds its heroes not in noble victors but in the spirit of ordinary men and women. In this lyrical tale of a fruit-picking family in some nameless weedy place, there is no sadistic overseer, unless it is the pitiless sun, which sucks sweat and hope from laboring bodies. Viramontes's novel comes the closest of any yet to universalizing this appalling life."- Joanne Omang, The Washington Post "A nationally acclaimed author... one of the country's premier Latina writers."- Jeff Kass, Los Angeles Times
