Death and the American Dream

(2009)
A novel by

 
 
Fiction. Latino/Latina Studies. The year is 1915. Although he lacks newspaper experience, Mexican emigrant Pepe Rios lands a job as a Spanish-language reporter in Los Angeles, thanks to the wealthy husband of a former lover. While most newcomers end up working in the fields, Pepe is thrust into a new milieu rife with political unrest. Robber barons, anarchists, and communists struggle with one another, and the news is filled with the exploits of Hearst, Darrow, Flores Magon, and Zapata. Awash in political intrigue and high society, Pepe attempts to uncover the truth about his best friend's death, but his quest for truth just might unravel his new life and force him to face an uncomfortable realization about his past. The author peppers this tantalizing and suspenseful novel with Pepe's journal entries, giving the character depth and dimension as he describes his former life in Mexico and his dreams for the future.
