Customer Review

on 29 June 2003
Read this for the BBC Bookclub July 2003, and not a book I knew of, or would have considered otherwise. I could not put it down!! A super read, giving two contrasting points-of-view.
Candido and America, the homeless, workless Mexican immigrants living in destitution in the canyon, are contrasted with Delaney and his family, the Americans living in luxury but with a fortress mentality, above the canyon.
Not an issue I had thought about, but so relevant even in Britain with the perceived threat from 'asylum-seekers' and 'illegal immigrants', and how all societies react to outsiders.
I felt for the Mexicans as the underdogs, but also for the Americans as their way of life is threatened.
