Embracing Chicana, Cuban, Dominican, and Puerto Rican writers and writers descended from a combined U.S. and Latin American heritage, Latina literature is one of the fastest growing and most exciting fields in fiction.

In these ten interviews, Kevane and Heredia give writers the opportunity to talk about how they began to write, the craft of writing, the conjunction of life, art and politics, literary influences, and their goals as artists. Readers will meet Julia Alvarez, Denise ChAƒAivez, Sandra Cisneros, Rosario FerrAƒAc, Cristina GarcAƒAsa, Nicholasa Mohr, CherrAƒAse Moraga, Judith Ortiz Cofer, Esmeralda Santiago, and Helena MarAƒAsa Viramontes. The writers' personal and literary journeys vividly portrayed in these interviews will enrich and enhance the readers' understanding of this exciting field.
