The Latino Reader provides a wonderful selection of poetry, fiction, autobiography, and other sorts of writing, spanning from the earliest encounters between Spanish and the indigenous people of what would become the United States to contemporary Latina/o writers in this country. And yet the book is short enough to be read in its entirety, something anthologies often do not accomplish. Each selection includes a helpful introduction by the editors.

The historical survey approach works well to establish the length and depth of Latina/o writers' participation in the literary history of the US. Anyone studying "American" Literature without reading the writers in this book isn't studying a representative slice of the literature of the United States.

At the same time, the quality of the writing gets stronger and stronger as the chronology moves forward. This affirms the editors' choice to focus most heavily on mid-twentieth-century writing—more than half of the work included (28 out of 52 writers) was published in the middle fifty years of the twentieth century (1934-1984)—but also leaves me wanting more work from the last thirty years. Indeed, given that book has become slightly dated (published in 1997), we can only hope for a second edition, bringing us closer to the present, including work from the last 20 years.

The editors, Harold Augenbraum and Margarite Fernández Olmos, have done us a great favor.
