Why Bother?

by PVSVCV on Aug 28, 2010

Mired in controversy? The book turns out to be a work of fiction. Why bother reading it, especially if it's been assigned to you by a college professor as "multicultural" reading. A) It doesn't do anything to inform one about the prevailing culture of Guatemala and B) it's not even true.

Difficult but Necessary History

by andidextruss on Sep 13, 2008

Much has been made of evaluating this history of the populist Guatemalan labor uprising in terms of a Western "memoir" narrative structure, and judging it in terms of an American academic "truth." The real push of this work is it's very fact of existence: the possibility for a woman whose life has positioned her as marginalized on almost all fronts: age, gender, language (speaking Quiché in a country where the language of bureaucracy is Spanish), land rights, etc. Yet she has delivered her life story of struggle and political organization (albeit through a Spanish-to-English translation and reorganization) to a wider audience. It is not easy to read this book, as it confronts one with the violence, manipulation, and suffering that always accompany indigenous movements towards solidarity, but it is fine if our foundations are shaken or consciousness disrupted if it means that we have more understanding of the importance of poor women of color's life work.
