EL MILAGRO and Other Stories

A slender volume of lyrical vignettes and loving character studies that isolate representative people and aspects of Chicano culture (e.g., ""La Tortillera The Tortilla Maker"" and ""Orgullo Pride""), all set in and around Tucson. Though uniformly devoid of plot or even narrative tension, the stories are enlivened by colorful imagery and, in those spoken by their focal characters (rather than Martin's omniscient narrator), racy individuality.
