Growing Up Hispanic in Houston

Sarah Cortez

This ground-breaking, mixed genre memoir journeys from the soil of Texas farmland near Floresville to the shrimpers’ nets of the Gulf Coast, near Matagorda.  Three generations of Hispanic families are viewed through the faith-filled lens of the miraculous and the poignancy of dreams never realized.  The journey continues to mid-twentieth century Houston, where what is done is as powerful as that which never happened.

SARAH CORTEZ is the author of How to Undress a Cop.  She has edited Windows into My World: Latino Youth Write Their Lives (2007); Hit List:The Best of Latino Mystery (2009); Indian Country Noir (2010); and You Don’t Have a Clue: Latino Mystery Stories for Teens (2011).  She lives and works in Houston, Texas.
