Alfredo Vea Interview
I want to drag "Chicano literature" out of the politically correct, folk art doldrums in which it languishes. Latino literature in America can and should be what Irish literature has been to English; what Black writing has been to American Literature. It's time for us to see where the artistic bar is set (Faulkner, Nabokov, O'Neill, Williams), and leap with every intention of going over it.
