Description:

The Devil's Punchbowl is an anthology of essays commissioned from writers living in California, who were asked to reflect on an aspect of the state's geography, natural or man-made: Alcatraz Island and its prison; Manzanar and Mt. Whitney; Big Sur and Joshua Tree; Los Angeles' oil derricks and Mountain View's Google headquarters; the farms of the Central Valley and the redwoods of the Northern Coastland. California's outsized cultural and economic impact on both our country and the rest of the world necessitate a continual taking stock, to prevent losing ourselves in the state's constant transformations. The Devil's Punchbowl captures a pivotal time in our country's history, as some of the state's most recognized, complex, and accomplished writers, including Carolyn See, Janet Fitch, David Ulin, Susan Straight, and Lisa See, describe their relationship with California's ever-changing geographic, economic, and psychic landscape.

From the Introduction

As we spiral into the twenty-first century, the foundations of Western civilization are consumed, corpse-like, by fragments, decay, wind and water. By the next century, one blue alien may stand on the shores of Earth holding a skull in the wreck we’ve made of this once beautiful planet and say, “I knew them once. A fair race, a proud race.” What energy and foul nesting instinct consumes us and causes us to ruin our own home while overpopulating it? Human passions and failures are the stuff of literature, the grist of good writing and none is more captivating than this monumental failure.

Description:

Río De Sangre tells the story, in Spanish, of the overthrow of a dictatorship in a fictional South American country. In the aftermath of a coup d’état, the new leader of a Latin American republic embarks on an idealistic course for his nascent government. Faced with numerous problems and no one to trust, our protagonist Delacruz realizes that the good of the country and the protection of his own family may be more than he can achieve.

A series of catastrophic events follow—earthquakes, kidnapping and assassination, combine to allow the rise of an adversarial wolf in sheep’s clothing. The outbreak of a riot affords the opportunity for this adversary to assume control of the government, thus perpetuating the tragic cycle of oppression.

The passion and color of the South American heritage, and the triumphs and struggles of its people throughout its history of oppression and tragedy suggests music of monumental drama.
