Summary
This volume brings together two important books in Rolando Hinojosa's lauded Klail City Death Trip series, a series that has frequently been compared to the work of William Faulkner and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The volume returns to familiar territory as Hinojosa continues his examination of life along the border, including the discrimination faced by Texas Mexicans and locals' involvement in war

Note
  • Korean Love Songs: Hinojosa's only poetry book, captures the horror of war through Rafe Buenrostro's recollections. In verse that depicts the slaughter of enemy soldiers, friendships made and lost and a military bureaucracy more interested in discipline than keeping its men safe, Hinojosa chillingly revives the terror and atrocity of human conflict. Originally published in Berkeley, California by Editorial Justa Publications in 1978
  • Rites and witnesses: Hinojosa created brief, brilliant chapters composed of conversational fragments, each one a tile in a vivid mosaic of narrative, capturing the complex relationships and unsettling power struggles in both civilian and military life. Alternating chapters reveal the unfolding plans and schemes of the local elite bankers, ranchers and real-estate moguls while on the other side of the globe, Klail City native Corporal Rafe Buenrostro engages in skirmishes with the North Koreans, the Communist Chinese and the power brokers of the U.S. Army. Originally published in Houston, Texas by Arte Público Press in 1982
