Intaglio: A Novel in Six Stories is a deftly-narrated coming-of-age novel made up of sensitive portraits of six extraordinary women from the Texas-Mexican border area who serve as the role models for the maturing narrator. The book pays tribute to the cultural expressions of these women and to the manner in which their creativity is transmitted to younger generations. Fernández’s style is riveting as she elaborates upon themes such as the making of a writer, the development of a feminist aesthetic and the identification and valorization of women’s culture in a pre-feminist era.
