A Northern New Mexico Novel
Trim: 9" x 7"
This posthumously published bilingual novel by Jim Sagel (1947–1998), whose unique genre of writing about Nuevomexicano culture and mastery of New Mexican Spanish was dubbed “Chicanesque,” reenacts the traditional Christmas play, Los pastores, as the backdrop for a parallel story set in the fictional New Mexican village of San Buenaventura. Ultimately, Sagel spins a tale intended to make us laugh even as we cry—much as life does. San Buenaventura’s people suffer brutal blows that sometimes (or often) knock them senseless, struggling to regain their footing, and seeing stars. They do so even as they live under a guiding star.
