First published in 1984, this award-winning book, considered a classic of Chicano fiction, is now available only from the University of New Mexico Press. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Alberto Alvaro Rios is Regents Professor at Arizona State University, Tempe. ACCLAIM Colorful, hurtful, as real as legend, this book provides a wonderful new access to a large but mostly unperceived culture and will loom large in any approach to the emerging art of the Mexican worldview in English. Rios is an artist. -- Choice The Iguana Killer is not the Chicano version of Catcher in the Rye--but it is close. -- San Antonio Express-News In his cool, unassertive way, Rios taps many moods, keeping a controlled but flexible rein on the emotions of his characters and their experiences. These are not Anglo stories or Mexican stories but the unique amalgam we call Chicano--the real thing at last. -- John Barkham Reviews
