Eliud Mart nez -- scholar, painter, novelist, professor, husband, father, brother, son, friend -- was a proponent of what he called "multiple ancestries." Inspired by Carlos Fuentes' novel The Death of Artemio Cruz, he conceived of Mexico as "a thousand countries with a single name." In G ero-G ero: The White Mexican and Other Published and Unpublished Stories, discover twenty tales inspired by Mart nez's own upbringing in Pflugerville, Texas, on the outskirts of Austin. The complicated histories of his ancestors were passed down to him by family elders. A gifted and natural storyteller, frequent visits with his father to Pflugerville's segregated cemetery compelled him to write. Here, authentic autobiographical detail elevates these stories to a high art, melding personal and cultural histories, crossing the ocean and spanning continents to divine what it means to be who we are.
