Literary Nonfiction. Latino/Latina Studies. Women's Studies. Ana Consuelo Matiella uses a unique brand of storytelling to reflect on her life and the lives of the women who influenced her. Each chapter deftly explores both personal experience and examination of primal archetypes in Hispanic femininity. Nevertheless, all women will recognize the kind of unavoidable female power she presents that interacts with both psyche and soul. Matiella's deft wit illuminates their force, significance, as well as inspiration.

"I have named these personal memories, LIFE AMONG MY MOTHERS, in honor and in gratitude for all my mothers, las madrinas who shaped me and showed me the different ways one can be a woman. Some of these memories are imprinted firmly and some of them elude me, but like my mother, I am a cuentera and whatever I didn't know, I made up." —Ana Consuelo Matiella

Reading Lessons on Expulsion reminded me that I am not alone.… (more)
