Críticas

In 1971, at the age of sixty-six, the labour activist, educator and scholar Ernesto Galarza (1905-1984) published "Barrio Boy, " a memoir of the long migration of his family from a small village in the Sierra Madre to California. "Barrio Boy" immediately became a classic of Chicano literature, and on its fortieth anniversary has now been published in a new edition with an introduction by the critic, biographer and short-story writer Ilan Stavans. "Times Literary Supplement"" Galarza s book is about growing up first in Mexico, then in America. To this reader, it is on the same artistic level as "Black Boy "or "Call It Sleep "or even "Huckleberry Finn." . . . As with Wright and Roth and Twain, we are given a near-perfect tale of rising from absolute poverty to middle-class security, but instead of a woeful recounting, it is filled with the joy of discovery: from living in the lively muddy streets of a small village in Nayarit to surviving, wide-eyed, in the lively and noisy barrios of Sacramento. "RALPH: The Review of Arts, Literature, Philosophy and the Humanities"" The 40th anniversary edition of Galarza s book, now a standard text in high school and college classrooms, has become so popular that it has . . . achieved the dubious honor of being the subject of study guides and essays available for purchase online. "Occidental College "" "A useful introduction by Ilan Stavans and Galarza's original preface accompanies this fortieth-anniversary edition of Barrio Boy. The book is well known within Chicano literary scholarship. It belongs to the genre of autobiography, certainly an empirical genre, a form of personal history, but also a self-portrait, a story that may serve as an example for readers." --Journal of American Ethnic History "The 40th anniversary edition of Galarza's book, now a standard text in high school and college classrooms, has become so popular that it has . . . achieved the dubious honor of being the subject of study guides and essays available for purchase online." --Occidental College "Galarza's book is about growing up--first in Mexico, then in America. To this reader, it is on the same artistic level as Black Boy or Call It Sleep or even Huckleberry Finn. . . .

Reseña del editor

Barrio Boy is the remarkable story of one boy's journey from a Mexican village so small its main street didn't have a name, to the barrio of Sacramento, California, bustling and thriving in the early decades of the twentieth century. With vivid imagery and a rare gift for re-creating a child's sense of time and place, Ernesto Galarza gives an account of the early experiences of his extraordinary life-from revolution in Mexico to segregation in the United States-that will continue to delight readers for generations to come. Since it was first published in 1971, Galarza's classic work has been assigned in high school and undergraduate classrooms across the country, profoundly affecting thousands of students who read this true story of acculturation into American life. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the publication of Barrio Boy, the University of Notre Dame Press is proud to reissue this best-selling book with a new text design and cover, as well an introduction-by Ilan Stavans, the distinguished cultural critic and editor of the Norton Anthology of Latino Literature-which places Ernesto Galarza and Barrio Boy in historical context.
