The author of Drink Cultura gathered this generous bilingual compilation of Latino folk sayings--dichos. Arranged by theme, these dichos express Latino wit and wisdom about subjects from Ability, Adversity, and Advice to Work, Writing, and Youth. José Antonio Burciaga was born in El Paso and taught at Stanford. His previous books include Drink Cultura: Chicanismo, Spilling the Beans: Lotería Chicano , and Undocumented Love . He was a Literature winner of the Hispanic Heritage Awards. He died in 1996 as this book was going to press. "José Antonio Burciaga has done it again! His book of Latino folk sayings is a mesmerizing goldmine of the wisdom and wit of a people who can laugh off any hardships. As a true poet, Burciaga has come out with real jewels. Some can make us laugh; others ca make us cry; all come from the deepest realm of our collective sould and heart."--Francisco X. Alarcón "Our young people need to hear his voice and the older generation needs to remember the causes for our uproar."--Gary Soto
