About the Edition

Latinos in Lotusland brings to life Latino denizens of the Los Angeles area resulting in a complex and diverse group of characters: young and old, gay and straight, rich and poor, the newly arrived and the well established. We meet aggressive journalists, cement pourers, disaffected lovers, drunken folklorico dancers, successful curanderos, teenage slackers, aging artists, wrestling saints, aimless druggies, people made of paper, college students, and even a private detective in search of a presumed-dead gonzo writer. Setting for these stories range from East L.A. to Malibu, Hollywood to the San Fernando Valley, Venice Beach to El Sereno. This anthology brings together established and newer writers who provide beautiful, powerful, and eloquent tales.
