About the 'big girls' of the 1970s Guaymas night club district and the conflicting needs, wants, realities, and illusions at the core of the 'viejas' ('working' girls) lives. Stuart focuses on the exotic fallen angels of the once fabled Club Rio Rita in Guaymas's Zona de Tolerancia (red-light district). Moving, funny, and at times tragic, the layered dimensions of their world are mesmerising. He also continues the stories of his working class friends and compadres in Guaymas, some closer to him than his stateside family. Their struggles with life on the streets provide a rich and uplifting counterpoint to daily life in the Zona. ""Zone of Tolerance"" is important, not only for its human and historical context, but precisely because it is a snapshot of a long-gone, little known slice of Mexican life. In this volume, as in the first, Stuart brings his unique perspective to bear on people seldom written about and a world rarely revealed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""The Guaymas Chronicles is a heck of a book. . . In such a writer and in such a book lies a mighty hope for education and accord out of the clefted differences "The Guaymas Chronicles perceptively, poignantly embodies."
"Stuart...makes the people of Guaymas, Mexico, come alive...he does an excellent job of giving us a feeling for the people and the culture."
""Zone of Tolerance" isn't a sexual expos, but rather a story about the lives of the people who were there, who they really were, and how they wound up there."
"Stuart presents the complicated layers of his life and his friends' lives--characters you seldom find in a book or encounter otherwise--with rich, mesmerizing detail. This book is a gem."
""Zone of Tolerance" isn't a sexual exposA(c), but rather a story about the lives of the people who were there, who they really were, and how they wound up there."
"Highly personal, humorous, and erotic, the book vividly portrays Stuart's friendships with the ladies of the evening who worked the once-fabled Club R o Rita in a "zona de tolerancia," or red-light district, now long gone."
