Rezensionen
"Professor Toruño-Haensly provides an excellent introduction to five exemplary contemporary Hispanic writers of the United States and their literary work. Their art, which is intimately related to their life experiences, draws attention to major social and political issues of our day." (Edward Waters Hood, professor at the North Arizona University, Flagstaff)
"'Crossing Cultures' offers a fascinating journey along the U.S. border through the work and lives of five writers straddling that line in both directions. The book offers bio-bibliographic information on the authors, in-depth personal interviews, and a significant sample of their work. Bilingual edition makes it accessible to wide range of readers. The book shows the acumen and warmth of Prof. Rhina Toruño's personality at her best. Highly recommended for students of border culture." (Dr. Emil Volek, Professor of Arizona State University, Tempe and writer)
"'Crossing cultures: Hispanic Authors and the Challenges They Overcame in the United States/Cruzando culturas: Autores hispanos y sus desafíos superados en los Estados Unidos'; es un libro que hace falta en los ámbitos literarios de nuestro continente para dar a conocer la difícil vida y la notable obra de escritores hispanos que habiendo escrito en un medio ajeno a ellos como es los Estados Unidos, han logrado pasar las fronteras del país y ganarse el reconocimiento de la critica. Para darlos a conocer, Rhina Toruño escogió como método la combinación de entrevistas y comentarios que resultan en un serio e importante texto muy ameno." (Dr. Rima de Vallbona, Catedrática emérita, University of St. Thomas. Miembro de la Academia Norteamericana de la Lengua Espanola (ANLE), Escritora latinoamericana)…mehr
