MEDIA REVIEWS

"Vivancos Perez's book, Radical Chicana Poetics, is a superb theoretical analysis of the works of several Mexican American women authors including such luminaries as G. Anzaldua, C. Moraga, A. Castillo, E. Perez, A. Gaspar de Alba, and S. Cisneros. Vivancos Perez brilliantly explores how these writers posit through their splendidly written creative work new subjectivities and sexualities as well as challenge, subvert, and deconstruct older conceptualizations of Chicanas written in the early years of the Chicano Movement. Vivancos Perez offers new and exciting perspectives on these writers and the reader will be greatly rewarded from the splendid insights articulated in the book." - Maria Herrera-Sobek, Associate Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity and Academic Policy, University of California Santa Barbara, USA
