Here's to you, Jesusa!

by Elena Poniatowska Deanna Heikkinen

Jesusa is a tough, fiery character based on a real working-class Mexican woman whose life spanned some of the seminal events of early twentieth-century Mexican history. Having joined a cavalry unit during the Mexican Revolution, she finds herself at the Revolution's end in Mexico City, far from her native Oaxaca, abandoned by her husband and working menial jobs. So begins Jesusa's long history of encounters with the police and struggles against authority. Mystical yet practical, undaunted by hardship, Jesusa faces the obstacles in her path with gritty determination. Here in its first English translation, Elena Poniatowska's rich, sensitive, and compelling blend of documentary and fiction provides a unique perspective on history and the place of women in twentieth-century Mexico.

La piel del cielo

by Elena Poniatowska

La piel del cielo es la historia de un hombre que busca en las posibilidades de la ciencia la explicación del mundo y que halla, en el proceso de esa búsqueda, el desafío del amor. La novela presenta una trama cuyo personaje central es Lorenzo de Tena, nacido alrededor de 1920 en México, de madre soltera y padre señorito. A la muerte de su madre se traslada, junto a sus hermanos, a la casa de su padre y de su tía Cayetana en la ciudad. Su brillantez intelectual le permite trabar amistad con los hijos de la clase más acomodada de México, pero su origen humilde y su carácter inconformista le apartarán del destino que se abre ante él como dirigente del país. La pasión de Lorenzo de Tena es la astronomía y la novela es un recorrido por su frustrante carrera como observador del cielo; sin embargo, es la tierra, con la sugerencia de su olor y de su aventura, la que le da el contrapunto a la obsesión por mirar más allá de las estrellas.
