about this book

In "Sapogonia," the revised edition of Ana Castillo's second novel, the complexities of mixed race relations and heritage in Latin America are examined.  In her second novel, Castillo (the author of The Mixquiahuala Letters) examines the obsessive struggle between a man and a woman, two natives of the metaphorical country of Sapogonia. In their battle for control over each other, the author subtly defines the struggle of all mestizos--the conflict of a mixed heritage of Conquistador and Conquered--which can never be resolved.
