Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Rafael Castillo's collection of short stories takes us to the borders, whether they be geographic or psychic, where ironic humor laced with existential angst always looms. His characters range from academic Chicanos negotiating identities, to gorilla freedom fighters in EI Salvador. Their commonality lies in their struggles to find self-agency and identity within a rearranged world.
