Heather McMichael: "Writing for The Outsiders: Ana Castillo Covers the Boundaries of Overlapping Worlds"

For the better part of two decades, poet, essayist and novelist Ana Castillo has been writing about the complexities of living and working on the boundaries of her overlapping worlds. She writes boldly about Latina sexuality, challenging machismo in her ethnic community. She also takes to task the ethnocentricity of feminists. With Loverboys, Castillo turns her formidable gifts to short fiction.
