Legend says that an Anglo stationmaster painted Albuquerque on the railroad sign in the 1880s because he couldn't trill that first R. In this long-awaited novel, Anaya reveals much more than the correct spelling Alburquerque, he bares the soul of a city. The story focuses on Abrain Gonzalez ex-Golden Glove champ and homeboy from Barelas who meets up with writer Ben Chavez. From this fateful encounter unfolds not only a poignant tale about a young man's search for his father in the mean streets of Alburquerque 1992, but a story of a Southwestern city coming to grips with the complexities and imperatives of explosive urban development. Anaya draws on his trademark magic realism but adds a touch of madcap adventure and political satire in this journey to the heart of Aztlan, where ruthless atorney Frank Dominic dreams of returning the city's downtown into a desert Venice by rechanneling the water of the Rio Grande. Where the mayor risks her career for love. And where a cast of hundreds, from the northern villages and the Santo Domingo Pueblo to the Duke City, help readers understand the deep roots and traidtions of New Mexico's people.
