Look Inside


The Harvest / La cosecha is the gathering of the complete short fiction of the late Tomás Rivera, the celebrated Chicano author of the classic …y no se lo tragó la tierra / …And the earth did not devour him. Framed within the Odyssean cycle of the migratory farm workers, Rivera’s stories are myths and parables which relate the universal themes of alienation, love and betrayal, man and nature, death and resurrection, and the search for community. Represented in laconic and poetic prose, Rivera’s characters become indelibly inscribed on the multicultural fabric of American literature.
