Set in deep, humid South Texas-where Mexico is a ten-minute drive and culturally characterizes the region-Parts tells the story of vulgar Mexican men working in the auto parts industry, men who create a suffocating atmosphere of machismo, immorality, and sexual innuendo. The novel's narrator, an auto parts stocker and driver unable to quit his job out of a sense of obligation to his family, seeks out the written word as a means to escape, which contrasts sharply with the pelado environment where he works and allows for a closer inspection of the pelado archetype inside the walls of the warehouse.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"South Texas literature has been neglected for good reason. For decades there hasn't been any. Until now, with the publication of Parts, by Shoney Flores. It's not that the bar has been raised--it's that there hasn't been a bar. Read this book and discover an America, a world you've never before seen. A splendid achievement that will be read for generations to come."
--Richard Burgin
"With the exception of Rolando Hinojosa-Smith, the Rio Grande Valley has been silent in its literary productions. No more! With Shoney Flores' first novel, Parts, the literary landscape announces itself in a bold and memorable depiction of the lives of marginalized workers living on the Texas/Mexico border. An unforgettable experience."
--Alan Watt
