Pásale is a Roman à clef novella, a journey through two Latinas’ lives, and their mission of recovery of their culture and language. This novel speaks to many Latina/os, multi-racial, multi-ethnic, and multi-cultural people in the United States who have grown up in two worlds and struggled to embrace their multi-faceted experiences. In the diversifying United States, this novel is for those looking to read more about race relations and growing up ‘different’ in this country.
Melissa Villa-Nicholas & Tina Nicholas break open the piñata and out pours the primas and tías; the fragments of our shared culture as Latinos. Our story is passed from generation to generation by the written word. This mother-daughter observation gives the reader insight into the deep family love that is at the heart of Chicano life. —Fred Rivera, Author of the Pulitzer nominated Raw Man
