About the Author
Gloria Anzaldua was a Chicana-tejana-lesbian-feminist poet, theorist, and fiction writer from south Texas. She was the editor of the critical anthology MAKING FACE, MAKING SOUL/HACIENDO CARAS: CREATIVE AND CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES BY FEMINISTS OF COLOR (Aunt Lute Books, 1990), co-editor of This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color, and winner of the Before Columbus Foundation American Book Award. She taught creative writing, Chicano studies, and feminist studies at University of Texas, San Francisco State University, Vermont College of Norwich University, and University of California Santa Cruz. Anzaldua passed away in 2004 and was honored around the world for shedding visionary light on the Chicana experience by receiving the National Association for Chicano Studies Scholar Award in 2005. Gloria was also posthumously awarded her doctoral degree in literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz. A number of scholarships and book awards, including the Anzaldua Scholar Activist Award and the Gloria E. Anzaldua Award for Independent Scholars, are awarded in her name every year.

I studying this book in one of my college classes and I fell in love with it. It's so emotional, intense, and angry. It's visceral and real. I think everyone who wants to better themselves and combat the racism in our society and in themselves should read this book and learn about Anzaldua's life. Any marginalized person is going to connect with something in the text, and anyone of privilege is going to gain some new perspective. Since, in someway, we are all marginalized and privileged it means there is so, so much to learn.
The text itself is also incredibly beautiful and evocative. It is not always a joy to read, no, sometimes it's too painful for that. But it is a powerful read, a meaningful read.
