This study critically examines the idea of culture from a perspective that extends beyond ethnicity. The contrast of metropolitan area and small town parallel experiences serves to underline the universality of Castillo's characters as well as her topical relevance to our contemporary world.

Reviews

“The author contextualizes the novels historically and allows for the discussion to focus on the multi-faceted cultural influences that impact the characters’ identities. True to Castillo’s characterizations, Shaul demonstrates how each protagonist learns to trust herself when challenged by the outside community and its inaccurate system of labels.”
-Dr. Kathryn Quinn-Sánchez, 
Georgian Court University


“While Castillo is read as a Latina author, Shaul’s work situates this writer in the larger US, that is to say that American canon. This study underscores the importance of Castillo’s literature in the larger discourse about gender, disability, immigration, and finally, what it means to be human.”
-Dr. Pamela Rader,
