Mexican Mornings: Essays South of the Border

Michael Hogan


Product Description

Editorial Reviews

This is a collection of essays on Mexico written by a well-known poet and historian who has made his home in Guadalajara for the past decade and a half. Michael Hogan gives us glimpses into the Mexican character which build on and illuminate those of Nobel Laureate Octavio Paz. However, he does more. Hogan shows us both the high life and the low life, the country and the city, the inside of the board rooms, and the inside of the living rooms. He takes us to the jungles of Chiapas, the halls of the largest university, to the communal farm, and inside the church. Through Hogan's eyes we meet with Fidel Castro in Guadalajara Centro, we attend a concert of the Tigres del Norte at the jammed-packed Rio Nilo stadium, and watch the behavior of horses during a solar eclipse. He also describes the results of globalization on the economy and suggests currents of change. It has been called by one reviewer, "the most fascinating insider's view of Mexico in the past decade! ."
