Brownsville

(2003)
A collection of stories by

 

"Oscar Casares does for Brownsville, Texas, what Eudora Welty did for Jackson, Mississippi. With surefooted prose, a kind humor, and authentic south Texas voices, his deceptively direct stories invite you down to the Rio Grande to think things over."
Tim Gautreaux


At the country's edge, on the Mexican border, Brownsville, Texas, is a town like many others. It is a place where people work hard to create better lives for their children, where people bear grudges against their neighbors, where love blossoms only to fade, and where the only real certainty is that life holds surprises.
